Very courteous boss and nice ambience. The food was excellent. The paste of the pizza was thin and crispy. You should try the self-made ravioli. They are just delicious.

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.
