Very good Italian restaurant, great location

We had a family lunch on a lovely warm April Sunday. Could not book a table on the terrace, which I would certainly recommend in summer. The food served was very good, I liked the risotto (cooked - or at least served - in a Parmesan wheel, very tasty while not excessively salty) and the grilled... read more

Piedro and staff are outstanding! The setting is spectacular, overlooking the Lake Zurich and the food is excellent. My husband and I had the Blima (red) wine and purchased extra bottles to bring home. My beef filet was so tender and tasty; the prawns and pasta were just excellent. Mixed salad greens were Super fresh and the dressing truly enhanced... More

We have just returned from a fantastic lunch, which consisted of deliciously prepared Zander (pike-perch), served with chanterelles, zucchini and parsley potatoes on a light saffron broth. Also the pasta dish was most satisfying. The typical Italian style service was most welcoming and efficient. Their daily menus are to be highly recommended und by Swiss standards a very good deal....

I have been there 5 times for a drink. It was quite nice, but I cannot say the same about the service. Cocktails are nice instead coffee was not good , unfortunately. I think the waiter, who was italian , could have been more mindful to prepare espressos to Italian costumers.... Anyway, it is not fair to complain for an... More

Able to eat on the terrace area after 2pm which is apparently not always possible in Switzerland. Very helpful waiter, spoke excellent English. Our party had mixed salad, seafood salad, followed by mains of ravioli and spaghetti. Afterwards excellent coffee. The nearby table was headed by a Dave Gilmour lookalike who played some outstanding Pink Floyd acoustic guitar (mainly from... More

Celebrated my birthday at La Scala. Beautiful location, attentive and friendly service, devious food (loved my pasta!) and lovely owner. Can't wait to refurn - highly recommended!

I think it helps if you speak Italian at this restaurant! Otherwise they don't seem interested in serving you AT ALL! We waited an hour for our starter and mine was cold when it eventually arrived (should have been piping hot). The table next to us had their main and pudding before we even got our main course and they... More

Very friendly and attentive staff, was even surprised to be able to speak Dutch to one of the waitresses. :-) The food?

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.

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 stuffed with chestnuts... More
