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.

We turned up a party of 5 including one child. Care is taken to bring the right candlelit ambience even at 4.30pm off season. We ordered spinach salad, mussels and aubergine mozarella, and ravioli for antipasti that were good tasters. As a farewell dinner we decided on carni dishes for a treat and the lamb was perfectly cooked, the medley... More

Never a disappointing trip to La Scala. Don't even bother looking at the menu, just allow the handsome servers or charismatic owner to tell you what's fresh. Be sure to try the lemon or parmesan risotto with whatever you decide on. And then head downstairs to the cellar-like bar for another glass of wine, the vibe is really something special.
