If you’re on a tight budget and have a big group of friends that can’t decide what to eat, try dragging them to this wallet-friendly restaurant. The food served here is not your fancy Italian fare, but if you are looking to fill your stomach fast, the sheer choice of dishes make this casual eatery a winner.

At the Liang Court branch, I ordered the oven-grilled escargots ($5.90), a decent appetiser if you want to try the usually atas dish minus the dent in your wallet. But if you yearn for something more satisfying, my personal go-tos are the baked rice dishes. From Bacon Mushroom Risotto ($5.90) to Chicken Gratin ($4.90), these carbo-loaded classics are comfort food at its simplest.

The dishes taste pretty mediocre on average, but at such low prices, it’s easy to keep my inner Michelin Star critic quiet. Add to that the free-flow drink bar (Pepsi, lemon tea, tea, coffee and so on) and I’m sorry to say that I’ve turned over to the dark side and might revisit one of Saizeriya’s many outlets again.

I used to live in Tokyo a few years back, and in the station closest to my place was a Sayzeria. The food is whatever - totally commercial - but they had really cheap wine. So I used to order something, anything - probably pizza - and just sit there and drink lots of wine. This is the best way to enjoy Sayzeria. Since I'm back at the States, no cheap places to drink, so I started carrying a hip flask...

Saizeriya has become one of my go-to restaurants for affordable fusion food with my friends. With more than 10 outlets located around Singapore, you can easily find one near you. Saizeriya is known for their ridiculously affordable prices, with pasta dishes ranging from $3.90 to $6.90. Did I mention that the portions are fairly big too?

My favorite dish at Saizeriya has to be the escargots. For only $5.90, you get 6 escargots baked in butter and garlic, not something you can find in restaurants for such a low price. My second favorite dish would be their pastas because of its simple yet tasty flavours.

The food arrives at your table relatively quickly and the waiters respond well to our calls. Overall, although the management seemed to have changed ever since it first opened, I always find myself returning for its value-for-money lunch/dinner fix.

Saizeriya used to be a budget-friendly restaurant which serves decent food. Their concept of refillable drinks have earned the praises of many, as well as Western cuisine with little monetary heft.

However, the quality of food has gone down with time. Food delivery up to the table can take as long as 15 minutes, to say the least. The Saizeriya outlet at Bukit Timah Plaza is often shorthanded, and leave customers unattended to. This is bad service for a restaurant of a respectable former glory. What's worse now is that the food has deteriorated in quality. For example, the signature Carbonara pasta is now too creamy. Too much cream makes the eater sick of eating it after a feel mouthfuls. The well-known escargots too, have lost its charm because of lack of garlic, which helps to enhance the fragrance of the dish.

Because of the noticeable drops in quality now, think twice about going to Saizeriya to get your lunch or dinner fix.

If you have a voracious appetite like I do, Saizeriya is probably one of your best bets without having to burn a hole in your pocket.

Saizeriya serves a Japanese/Italian/French fusion food. That being said, the quality of the food is nothing fantastic and if you are simply looking for a decent, budget meal, this place will be suitable for you. While the pasta and steak are mediocre, the escargots are slightly more impressive. I don't know of anywhere else in Singapore that serves half a dozen of escargots for $5.80. The affordability is really the most attractive feature of this place. Saizeriya is also group-friendly; I had a meal there once with a group of 15 people!

Bonus points to Saizeriya for having no GST and service charge - YAY.

The main attraction of Saizeriya lies in its low prices. For as little as $4.50 you can get some decent Italian food, and without GST or service charge, at that! Service staff are cheerful and attentive, and the ambience of the place definitely does feel a lot classier than you'd expect for such affordable meals.

However the food is, well, what you'd expect for the prices you're paying. From what I've tried, their gratins are tasty, but portions are small. While pasta dishes are more filling, the taste of the food just isn't great - it's at times too oily, or salty, and ingredients used are obviously cheap. But for 5 bucks, and a nice atmosphere, who really minds? Would recommend this as a nice place on a small budget, but it's not for picky eaters or those who really want a good, hearty Italian meal.
