Very good Italian restaurant.

We tried this restaurant for lunch as many were closed on Sunday. There is a bar downstairs which is okay but we were shown upstairs to a nice room. We had a window table with a lovely view of the lake. The food was very good quality but warning the portions are small. My partner had ravioli... read more

Enjoy the sun, watch people strolling by, very nice drinks, friendly and professional service. Excellent bar and food menu and the food was very very good. Nice place to be even Rapperswil restaurants are more on the expensive side.

I recently dined at La Scala, an upmarket Italian restaurant. On a wet, cold evening, the fairly small indoor restaurant was busy but we managed to find a table. My filet of beef with Risotto was superb, and my colleagues all spoke highly over their meals. The service was reasonably efficient and friendly. However, as with most things in Switzerland,...

More or less a typical top quality Italian restaurant for Switzerland. fresh fish grilled, roasted or in salt with a fine pasta and truffle starter. Not cheap but good quality and friendly service. Waiters seemed to be able to respond in various languages depending on what you spoke to them in. Nice warm atmosphere as well and when weather permits... More

We (2pers) had a lunch on the terrasse. After 20 min, we have order 2 salads (overpriced, but we are in CH) those salads were supposed to be composed with different ingredients mentioned on the menu list. When the plates came, it was very funny to see our salads with few nuts and croutons. Where is the cheese and the... More

It's always nice sitting in the first row having a beautiful view to the lakeside and enjoying a glass of wine. The wine and food are excellent. The service is extraordinary friendly. It's every time a pleasure being there.

Half an hour to be served a drink. Nearly an hour waiting for a menu. Staff were just plainly disinterested or trying to avoid serving food.

Paid almost CHF 20 for 2 beers, which was expensive but acceptable considering the location, heat and climb we had just made in order to walk around the Rapperswil castle. However, after seeing the steep menu prices we decided not to have dinner there and were promptly told by the manager to pay up and leave immediately as he wanted... More

Excellent food (very nicely presented) and very very nice location, particularly from the terrace. The 'Sottoscala' drinks bar is also welcoming and service is good.

Lunch for three today at La Scala: three fish main courses were all properly cooked and washed down with a bottle of Sicilian white wine Service was good and we were eating main courses within 20 minutes of arriving despite it being busy Prices were to be expected for Zurich
