I have eaten at the liang court and toa payoh outlet. They used to provide different types of tea like chamomile, peppermint, earl grey, english tea, blackcurrant and few others however, today when i went, it came as a disappointment that they no longer have that! Having been there a couple of times, I have tried quite a few dishes there. The pepper beef steak is slightly on the dry side and a little tough although i order it to be cooked till medium. At $11.90++, i couldn't be too fussy about that and few of my not-so-picky friends enjoyed the steak. Their sides like the spicy buffalo wings tasted like pizza hut's spicy wings and the baked clams were smaller than the picture in the menu but still tasted great. Their cabonara isn't as creamy and rich as pasta mania but for just $8.90++ with free flow of drinks and salad, it was passable. The baked chicken with cheese rice was great as first but as the more you ate, you will get sick of the taste as it is pretty rich with lots of cream and cheese inside. However, i prefered it to the cabonara.

Overall, they have pretty decent food at an incredible offer. Each visit i exit the restaurant with an extremely bloated stomach and $10-$15 poorer.

Saizeriya Italian Restaurant used to be one of the hangout places, my best friends and I would go during weekends mainly because it is super affordable, relaxing and crowd-free! Their outlet at liang court provides a good environment for gathering as people rarely visit this shopping mall (I guess). Always had our gathering at this outlet, order our favourite food (squid ink spaghetti, Hawaiian pizza, chicken wings, risotto) and their free-flow drinks! The drinks cost around $2.80 on weekends and about $1.50 on weekdays ( worth it right, if we were to sit here , eat and talk for like many hours, without getting thirsty).

Likewise, any assistance needed could be done in just a press of button. A button is located at the end of the tables for customer to seek help in terms of ordering, collecting of payment of etc. Service is really good. It makes you feel at home by being so comfortable in the restaurant. What’s more? Everything that you paid is already in nett price. YES! NO GST NO SERVICE CHARGES. Everything is already inclusive. W O W.

Affordable Pricing, Comfortable Environment, Satisfying Food, seem like only Sazieriya fits the bill perfectly.

If you want cheap Western food that’s also delicious, head over to Saizeriya. You can easily get a meal for under $10 here, complete with free-flow drinks.
I went there for dinner and had seafood paella (complete with squid, clams, mussels and prawns) for $7.90, along with free-flow drinks at $2.80. You know how squid, when overcooked, becomes really gross and rubbery, and that at a cheap place like this, it wouldn’t be cooked well? Well, the squid here was cooked to perfection. It was amazing. The variety of drinks available is quite wide as well, with everything from coffee and tea to soft drinks like Coke and Ginger Ale.
The food is spectacular given the price, and I’m definitely coming here the next time I have to buy someone a nice dinner.

Who knew that Italian cuisine could be cheap? People who know Saizeriya. Most of the time, I relate Italian cuisine to an empty wallet after getting the bill. But my dear, not only is Saizeriya cheap, it really is quite good. I would describe the food as "Simple yet tasteful".

What I love about Saizeriya is how unpretentious it is. They claim to offer Italian casual dining for all occasions, affordable food and quality service, no service charge and GST. I would say that everything is true except for the "quality service" because you do not get much service other than being seated, and getting your order taken and served. Drinks are self-service because of their 'free-flow drinks bar' and you pay at a counter.

Tip: Look out for the seasonings provided and grab it for your table!

I've patronized the one at City Square Mall for around five times.

Food wise: Menu wise, a plethora of food is available to customers. Ranging from children friendly food (think kids meal and spaghetti etc) to those catered towards adults (escargots etc), there is something in store for everyone. It fits into city square's family-friendly theme. I usually get the baked rice although it can be quite gelat after eating it for awhile, the same goes for the squid ink pasta. I didn't like the risotto as it was very watery for me more like rice drowning in water-like gravy.

Price and service: Prices are relatively student friendly, with even escargots being less than $10. Service is reasonable and prompt. Beware to queue up if you're coming for dinner, the place is usually packed during dinnertime from 630pm.

There are loads of good qualities to be described about Saizeriya, a delightful restaurant for Italian dining located in places such as City Link Mall and Toa Payoh. For a person perpetually on a tight budget like me, I felt extremely satisfied in getting cheap food well worth my money, never mind the exquisite tastes and high expectations one might have with regards to Italian food.

Saizeriya prices its menu in nett prices, which means that the prices reflected on the menu has taken into account all service charges and GST. This is impressive as nett prices range from as low as $3.90 for a main dish (comparable to hawker centre, food court food) to the highest of $11.90 for its prime sirloin steak (cheap!). Hence, to the delight of the NSF, he can visit a proper restaurant for a fine meal at an extremely affordable price.

The menu available at Saizeriya is adequate but informative. I found it useful as they advised me as to which are the chef's favourite, the level of spiciness I can expect from the dish as well as the ingredients used in the making of the dish. I ordered Paessol, which was basically baked rice with mussells, clams and seafood topped with parmesan cheese. I wasn't as big as I'd expect for a $7.90 dish but oh boy, the food tasted good! The mussels were terrific and I enjoyed the clams tremendously. On the other hand, my friends ordered salmon cheese baked rice and clam noodles reported that their dishes are rich in cheese and delicious as well as having a whooping load of clams (for the clam spaghetti) respectively.

The drink bar, in my opinion was adequate. For $2.80, you get a free flow of drinks which includes cold drinks (with your standard coke, pepsi, ice lemon tea etc) and hot drinks (cappucino, latte etc). However, look out for out of ordinary drinks such as their ginger ale (quite fizzy and tasty) as well as their delicious orange and lime juice.

Lastly, the toppings bar is fantastic, with loads of chilli, tomato sauce at your disposal in addition to parmesan cheese, pepper sauce, and other toppings I rarely see before.

A must visit place!

I love the escargots from Saizeriya but their escargot can be inconsistent at different outlets. I was served with burnt and overcooked escargots once but most of the time, they are beautifully done.

Their cheesy meatballs and gratins are good. Carbonara and squid ink spaghetti are pretty decent too. The portion can be quite small, especially for guys. But because the price is so reasonable, (think food court price, or cheaper), one can afford to order 2 mains. Also, not to mention, their free flow drinks bar. They have at least 10 drinks there, ranging from cold drinks to soda to hot coffee.

Not the best place for Italian food but considering the price and the variety, I see myself visiting Saizeriya very often.

My hubby's favorite restaurant because they offer great selection of free flow drinks and escargots at incredible cheap price yet its fresh and tasty. As my hubby calls it, "the drink buffet spread" includes carbonated and non-carbonated drinks, two different iced tea flavor, Dilmah tea and a coffee machine that does good cuppuccino.

I love the chicken wings there, tasted like Pizza Hut but the size is bigger. I like the combination hot plate with interesting pairing of meat and vegetables.

Service is quick and the bill size is reasonable. Of course this is no fine dinning so please expect happy youngsters that are excited by the cheaper version of Jack's Place.

I went to Saizeriya with high expectations because my friend was raving about how cheap and good it was. When I saw the menu, I was really surprised at the prices. Most of the mains are priced at about $5.90 to less than $10. With just a top up of about $2++ you can get a free flow of drinks which is definitely quite worth it. Aside from the price, the service and food wasn’t that great.

We didn’t know that there was a bell to press for service and spent about 10 mins just to get the attention of the staffs. However, most of them weren’t looking at the customers at all. They were simply walking straight to where they intended to head to and somehow ignored us despite waving at them repeatedly.

Food-wise, our mushroom soup arrived cold and we had to ask for reheat. Their carbonara was too creamy to my liking and their cheese sausages are also on the average. However, their chicken wings and chicken chop are not too bad and worth trying. All their food comes in really large portion as well.

Saw an advertisement for Saizeriya which boasted "No GST and Service Charge!" which caught my attention. (The surcharges are quite the put-off.)

Their food, which I would describe as a Japanese-Western fusion, is simple and cheap. Pastas are around $5 to $6 for a sizeable portion. I personally enjoy the Genovese Pasta. Other good mains would be the gratins and stews. However, I had the beef stew which came in a really small serving. That was slightly disappointing.

Their sides are also cheaper than your average Western restaurant. A must-order everytime I visit would be the escargot in garlic and butter, which is a lot cheaper - around $7 for 6 pieces, if I remember correctly. Other than that, you can also pay a few dollars to upgrade to a meal as they offer free-flow drinks.

On the other hand, their desserts are not worthwhile. The "lava" in the chocolate lava cake was frozen, and the cake was incredibly tiny; it could be finished in 3 bites.

Overall though, Saizeriya is a good place to visit if you crave Western food and have a tight budget.
