Whenever we are stumped as to where to go for a sit down meal we will go here. All the meals from breakfast to dinner are good. This is under the condition that I have had most of the breakfasts, the pizzas, salads and burgers which all have been really nice. I would not choose to have their Yiros again.

Decided to walk into Salvatore's quite late after been at the Darwin Festival for a show. The staff were friendly, service was quick. Beautiful freshly cooked lasagne and gnocchi, really looking forward to heading back into the city next to come back here. Fantastic selection of desserts all equally delicious from what we tried!

We visited Salvatores Cafe several times while we were in Darwin. To be honest, we never actually ate there, but we enjoyed their great coffees and the delicious mango smoothies. The service was always friendly and prompt and the staff was quite ok with us spending some time there reading and talking. Very reasonably priced as well!

Wandered around Darwin looking for something to eat....not sure what to have. Walked past this place 3 times thinking it was just Italian which we didn't feel like eating. Finally gave in and went in finding a menu for other food. We both ordered a steak, salad and chips and cold drink. Great light lunch. Not the flashest of atmospheres... More

Wonderful to find a cafe that's dog friendly. We've been here twice sampling an extensive cafe menu. Food is yummy, plentiful and promptly served. It is also licensed. Recommended to all who travel with their four legged friends.

The pizza here was good. Obviously made with love, the pizza had fresh tomato, ham and fresh herbs. The base was light and fluffy but crisp on the bottom. Very good service, reasonable prices. Downside is that it is like eating at Mackas. Cheap chairs and noisy.

Came here as we had walked past it a number of times and it looked inviting, we weren't disappointed! Friendly staff and great authentic food with many options available. Reasonable prices. If we visited Darwin again I would return!
