Saizeriya – great value Japanese Italian food

Saizeriya – great value Japanese Italian food

This eatery deserves its own post. We like to visit Saizeriya for its best of Italia food – pasta, pizza, focaccia, risotto, tiramisu… the dishes are only 299 to 499 yen and the great thing is that you can try many of their meals due to their perfect not too big size.

We are also happy with the food variety as there are many choices without meat.

Saizeriya it is.

They have two menus. One is just for kids. Saizeriya is a recommendable family restaurant.

In Japanese restaurants you will often see a button bell to call the waiter – awesome unobtrusive service. You will also always get wet napkins to clean your hands before the meal. In more fancy restaurants you will get real towels.

Our starters. Mozzarella tomato and shrimp salad.

Seafood spaghetti. If you want parmesan cheese or tabasco sauce – you gotta ask, these are never at the table.

My favourite: escargot – baked snails in a delish garlic sauce.

The pizza comes with a pizza cutter.

Delish desert. Tiramisu. You can order half a cake or a whole square.

The bill. Only 3,392 yen – that is 26 Euros for two, all those meals above, including drinks (two very good beers it was).

You will see many Japanese girls or average salary workers ordering loads of saizeriya wine. The small glass is only 100yen for red or white wine.

There is no way to cook any of it cheaper at home, nor to get any comparable Italian food for that price in Tokyo.

There are many branches all around Japan. It’s best if you look at their web-page and indicate the area you are looking for. The site is in Japanese but I just pop the link into chrome and it translates the addresses.

We went to the Ginza branch with our friend Piotr who admittedly preferred Uobei Genki amazing Sushi but had three deserts in the end.

I had the darkest squid ink spaghetti ever.

Do not order when on a date. Makes your teeth and lips go black. And your face weird.

I can hear Piotr say: ‘So what – I like ice cream’.

Shsh. Secret. Vanilla ice cream on hot and soft focaccia sprinkled with brown cinnamon sugar is bliss.

And number three. After that Piotr had more ice cream at the conbini. This is what happens in Japan.
