Scotland B2B checks out Dunfermline’s own taste of Italy
Next time you’re looking for somewhere in Fife to entertain clients or treat the team after landing an award or contract, check out Ciao Italia on Nethertown Broad Street.
It’s not exactly in the throng of things but, if someone’s willing to be the designated driver, it’s well worth parking up out back and taking in this little taster of Italy.
It’s a little out of the town centre so it’s easy to see why it might be initially overlooked, but once you’re there, you’ll wonder why you hadn’t ventured in before.
Dubbed the ‘Italian restaurant for food lovers’, the restaurant is, of course, family-run and serves up nothing but the best traditional Italian cuisine using fresh, authentic ingredients – some of which are flown in specially from Europe.
Having enjoyed its place on Nethertown Broad Street for the last seven years, Ciao Italia is popular with the locals, thanks to a number of unique selling points – one of which is the open kitchen, in which you can watch the chef prepare your pasta from the comfort of your own seat. Another is its impressive 5ft wine wall.
The restaurant has recently launched a new Monday- Friday Special Lunch Menu and even offers a pre-order service for when time is precious and all you have is an hour.
All you have to do is let the team know what you’d like off the menu when you book online and hey presto, it will be ready for you when you arrive to take your seat.
We can recommend the Pomodori E Mozzarella (homemade garlic bread topped with cherry tomatoes, rocket and parmesan shavings) and Mezzi Pacheri Al Ragu Napoletano (short, tubed-shaped pasta with steak, red wine and tomato sauce).
The restaurant also has an extensive wine list and makes its own ice creams and flavoured cheesecakes and Panna Cotta on a daily basis.
