Both teams are coming off disappointing defeats – Fiji going down 14-37 to Australia and the Azzurri losing 13-34 to Scotland last week.
McKee suggested he is fielding a “stronger” team this week and said they have “worked hard” on improving the mistakes made against Australia.
“The team was unhappy with their performance [against the Wallabies] and are keen to rectify their mistakes,” the Fijian coach said.
“Italy will be a very different challenge to the Wallabies,” he said.
“They will be focussed on stopping our attack and denying us possession, so we will have to win the physical contest to succeed in this game.”
Italian coach Conor O’Shea made two changes to his starting XV for the Suva outing.
Scrumhalf Marcello Violi will make his first Test start, after his three pervious caps were all off the bench.
In the other change Abraham Steyn comes in at No.8 in the place of Robert Barbieri.
Flank Francesco Minto will captain the Azzurri for the first time.
It is a young Italian squad with an average age of just 25.
O’Shea said he hopes the consistency in selection will help Azzurri grow as a team.
“I’m excited to see what Francesco [Minto] can bring as a captain,” he said.
“His work ethic is an example for everyone and we look forward to seeing him take the team forward.
“Our goal is to continue on our path, improving with every game and improve our discipline.”
