Buratta and prosciutto appetizer was a great start. We enjoyed the dinner on a lovely evening by the upstairs window..... great people watching on the street below. We'll definitely go back on our next Vancouver visit.

You must try the gnocchi with duck confi. Prices are reasonable. Service excellent! House wine choice was also very good. Easy to find beside Tiffanys down town. It was recommended to me by a friend. Glad we tried it.

Business casual. Most people dress fashionably on weekend nights.
Is the restaurant noisy?

The Shangri La is on West Georgia and Thurlow. Go south on Thurlow til you get to Alberni. Turn east along Alberni and the Italian Kitchen will be on the north side of Alberni. There's no dress code. Hope this helps.
