On October 26, Georgetown's beloved pizzeria napoletana, Il Canale, was buzzing even more than usual. Crowds of local and visiting Italians, Il Canale veterans, and family and friends congregated on 31st street to get a taste of guest chef Gennaro Luciano's pizza.
Luciano is the owner and head chef of the famous Antica Pizzeria Port' Alba in Naples. Established in 1738, it is believed to be the oldest pizzeria in the world. Luciano made his very first trip to the United States to collaborate with Il Canale and pay visits to Nashville, Fort Lauderdale, and Miami.
