Owned by Sicily native Giuseppe “Joe” Farruggio, Il Canale, a 95-seat Italian pizzeria, opened in 2010. This 1,200-square-foot bilevel venue is modern in design and has the look of an art gallery. In addition to the oven, the main dining room has an open kitchen, an eight-seat bar, and a textured stainless steel staircase that leads to the 50-seat private dining level and 40-seat terrace. The menu includes pastas, risottos, steaks, and seafood. Il Canale is available for full buyout.
