Went there for the free wifi, returned for the coffee and pastries in the morning. Happy hour featured great cocktails at a reasonable price (hard to find in Italy) and a fun atmosphere. Plus a free plate of appetizers. Hard to beat!

A real nice place to have a casual meal, listen to music, and enjoy the harbor sites (large cabin cruisers). Get that Salty Dog Cafe T-shirt too!

We ate dinner here 3 nights in a row! Mix of locals and tourists. Prices are very good and their paninis are all delicious! I believe this is a family run business, and they were all very courteous and kind.

We loved the salty dog....best coffee in Italy. We had two teenagers to feed...nothing else open. We were glad as the service and coffee....also basaltic vinegar were the best of our trip. The wife of the. Owner was extremely helpful and pleasant, giving us free sample plates. Forget expensive restaurants.

We were there almost alone, waiter was extremely polite and did everything perfect. Food was great too. Hmm.I think it's the main thing what I want from a good restaurant. P.s. The prices were good enough too.
