Great service, a very tasty meal. It is busy but not noisy. We have been to a number of the Glowbal group restaurants and have enjoyed all of them. The Italian Kitchen is no exception. Good quality experience!

This restaurant has gone from slightly better than mediocre to really bad. Nobody at our table liked what they ordered at all. It was over cooked and flavourless. They also catered to a table that looked excessively wealthy, leaving our table to have to call...More

We had been out and needed a place to catch a late lunch. We had the Prosciutto for an appetizer. I had the Piccata Chicken and my wife the Pasta. A good place to sit and rest while enjoying our meal.

The food was good, there had burrata there as part of the entree. I was a bit disappointed it was in tiny strips on the bruschetta. I'm a big fan of burrata cheese but this has got to be the tiniest portion I was served....More

The food itself was quite good -- especially the pasta (= their specialty). I had the truffled spaghetti with meatballs -- if I ordered it again, I would order without the meatballs, they were quite plain and didn't add much. But the pasta itself was...More

Vancouver's business district, the Downtown area is

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.
