Photos of the Saizeriya Menu

Updated on October 10, 2011

If you're traveling in Japan and hankering for some cheap Italian food, Saizeriya is the place to go. The Italian restaurant chain can be found all over Japan's major (and less major) cities, and offers consistent, delicious, and affordable italian food- with a fun Japanese twist of course.

Saizeriya is particularly foreigner-friendly because of its menu, which offers both helpful photos and lovely photos of all the dishes you can order. You needn't know any Japanese to be able to get exactly what you want!

One thing in particular that I love about the Saizeriya menu is that, in addition to English descriptions and photos, each dish is listed along with caloric information, so if you're watching what you eat, you'll know exactly what you're ordering.

Because I'm such a big fan of Saizeriya and its menu, I snapped a bunch of photos of its menu. The photos were taken with my phone, so they're not great, but they do the job alright!

You'll see that the menu is broken down into sections: salads, soups, appetizers, gratin / doria, pasta, pizza, steak and hamburg, and desserts. All of the dishes taste great, and since I've eaten at Saizeriya a bunch of times, I've had a chance to see nearly all of them in the flesh. Oooh... I'm getting hungry just thinking about them!

I hope this sneak peek at the Saizeriya menu has been fun or useful... hahaa! I am perhaps too big of a fan of this restaurant (it's not exactly... amazing... I just find it very comforting!), but more often than not, comfort food is not particularly fancy or special.

Have you ever seen or eaten at a Saizeriya? What do you think of it? Let me know in the comments!

      Thanks for stopping by, y'all!

      You know, ktrapp, Italian food in Japan is actually AMAZING!! It's one of the things I look forward to most about visiting!

      And whoah, JSParker! I had no idea Saizeriya is in Shanghai, too! That's so neat!

      Nearly all restaurants in Japan are tourist friendly, Erin Boggs1- at least from my experience! One thing you can always rely on is a digital camera- even if you don't knowt the language, you can snap a photo of the plastic food display for the meal you want to order, then show that to your waiter! Everyone is so nice, you've got nothing to worry about. Go!!

      Japanese restaurants sure do win when it comes to presentation, eh,

      Great photos Simone - some of the deserts look awerome. I've never been to one of their restaurants but love italian and when in Japan loved the way food was displayed on a plate.

      I love that there is a restaurant in Japan that is tourist friendly. I actually have learned some Japanese in my spare time as I want to go to Japan one day. I feel knowing about this restaurant will help when I get to fly over there. Thanks for the useful information. And I totally voted up!

      Geez, I wanted to go! So I Googled it and found this restaurant in Shanghai, too. A bit of a hike for lunch today, though. Nice pictures, great for pointing and nodding your selection. :D

      That is a beautiful menu with all of the photographs. But, it is sort of funny with all the Italian food photos with Japanese writing next to them. I have never traveled there before, but my sister does occasionally for work so I will tell her about this.
