Situated in Kirkcaldy, La Passione is a small slice of Italy in Scotland making good use of its location by using the renowned local seafood in its mouth watering cuisine. The Italian chefs have more than 30 years of experience and serve a vast selection of both traditional and modern dishes, using only the best ingredients imported directly from Italy. Fresh monkfish wrapped in Parma ham is a local speciality and meat-eaters are equally catered for with a large selection of steaks and other meats. Vegetarians are not forgotten here and are invited to choose from a selection of pastas, pizzas and omelettes all created on the premises, using only the freshest ingredients. There is also an extensive wine list, which is almost exclusively Italian to impress even the most ardent connoisseurs, and a children's menu is currently in development.
