When we first worked together in 2002 we used to say “when we get our own shop it will have salami hanging, black & white checkered floors, family & food photos all over the walls and a big chrome coffee machine.
Be careful what you wish for! “Passione” is the brain child of two great friends, Nick Spallone and David Infirri.
Nick is originally from Vancouver and his background is Swiss, Italian & Argentinian (he is also not too shabby in speaking most of these languages). David was born in Perth with parents migrating from Sicily & Calabria. The one thing they have in common is their love for serving fresh, good quality homemade food. ”Food is everything!” It’s all we talk about. When we sit down for lunch we talk about what’s for dinner. That’s the way we have grown up.
Passione offers the same foods we have grown up on. Cold meats, cheeses, antipasto & panini. If you aren’t in the mood to cook there is a range of ready made meals including lasagnas, pizzas, quiches, homemade fritters and fresh salads made everyday. Dessert is catered for too, Italian gelato, fresh Corica pastries and more...
Passione has one of Perth’s biggest selections of cheeses, meats and antipasto.
We have groceries to help with your cooking journey from mustards to chutneys
to gluten free products.
We take serious pride in our products and we enjoy informing customers about new and upcoming produce. Our suppliers provide us with the latest goods coming to the market and at a fair price. We are regularly hunting down unique products for international recipes to meet the needs of our customers.
Corica cakes are delivered fresh everyday. Made in Northbridge since 1957, these Italian delicacies are made using fresh real cream, Italian style custard and the lightest pastry.
Try the vanilla slice, amazing! Their famous apple strudel is also available by order. Passione fix would have to be one of the amoré biscotti & a short macciato.
From local producers and from around the world. Take home a cheese board that has a slice of Tasmania, Italy, Germany, Holland and France. All without the jet lag!
Free tastings daily! Ask us for a sample next time you're in. This month's special is “Primmadonna” Dutch - sharp & tasty with gritty salt crystals and a hint of parmesan sharpness.
All our cold cuts are 100% gluten free. We source the highest standard of cold roast meats, salami, imported prosciutto , cacciatore & chorizo. Always cut fresh to your preference.
Try our mouth-watering wagyu beef coppa and our free range preservative free leg ham. Nitrate and preservatives are not welcome at Passione!
What we like to refer to as “the beer essentials” - olives, semi-dried tomatoes, homemade dips, grilled melanzane & zucchini, local octopus and garlic prawns.
A must for any lazy afternoon by the pool or for your next picnic. Try our baby bell peppers filled with goats cheese - absolutely orgasmic! Scusa!
If you're not in the mood to cook, our extensive range of homemade meals, salads, lasagnas, free range chickens, pizzas, fritters and daily specials will ensure that you never have to make the big mistake of getting takeaway that you only regret after eating.

Passione started with a small team in 2010 with a vision of providing Kingsley and the
surrounding area with quality food, gourmet ingredients and fresh espresso style coffee. Since
then the team has grown in every part of that vision. We at Passione are committed, creative, work
really well as a team and are passionate about food and customer service.
Creating our own recipes, providing advice and coming up with new and innovative ideas, the staff has so much to share with the community. When you walk into the shop you can feel the warmth that the team members provide. We strive to know customers by name as well as their tastes in food and that personal touch is what we believe keeps them coming back.
Passione can take care of your next work or school meeting with a selection of rolls cut into bite size portions as well as salads and sweets. We can cater for any function no matter how big or small. Our antipasto platter in a bag gives you everything you need to impress at your next party. Cold meats, cheese, antipasto, dips & crisps. Lots of colour & flavour, simply spread and serve. Starting from $65.
