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

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.

This restaurant is beside others on the no-view area of the lakefront of Rapperswil. We ordered a Carpaccio di Polpo (pictured by one reviewer): nice but micron-thickness of the slices made us feel a bit cheated. We ordered an Aubergine alla Parmigiana and it took 45 minutes to get it (the restaurant was nearly empty -only 5 tables in total... More

I stay in Rapperswil for business on a regular basis and have eaten at La Scala a few times. The food is excellent, the service impeccable and the wine selection is both very good and personal. The first times we had dinner at La Scala we eat at the restaurant on the second floor, but the last couple of times... More

Location is lovely, overlooking lake Zurich. I personally think though it's far too expensive. The food is fine, grand, had to wait 1hr 10min for main course and only one of us (party of 4) had starter....but I personally will not be returning. There are so many other restaurants nearby with same if not better standard of food and also... More

Good atmosphere. Wonderful terrace in summer. Good specials. Genial host, Pierro. Some nights he will take the guitar in hand and pretend he is Eros Ramazzoti.
