We had dinner at la Scala on a saturday evening. What a lovely evening we have had. Next to a wonderfull dinner (succulent beef cutlet) with exellent (and discreert) service the maître d'hote sang some all time (Italian) classics. This is the place to be on a summer evening!!

I m very sorry Sir, but we don't serve any pizzas in our restaurant. For shure you'll be in another place. You know is easy in Rapperswil on the promenade Make mistakes because the restaurant are very closed. Next time come to visit us and try our specialities. We offer you a glace of wine. Have a nice time Piero More

We had a lovely lunch at La Scala. They have really good handmade pastas, fish, meats, and salads. The service was good, and there are beautiful views over the lake. Try the spicy penne with vodka sauce, the pasta over monkfish stew or the ravioli!

I stopped here for a glass of wine during a downpour. The service was quick by Swiss standards and they had a several good wines by the glass. The food around me looked good, so I ordered a pizza and had another glass of wine. A good overall experience.

We stopped at La Scala for a nice lunch in Rapperswil. We opted for the menu of the day which started with a wonderful homemade ravioli and a very nice fish dish for the entree. We were too full for dessert. It's a little pricey, but everything in Switzerland is... don't go if you're on a budget.

We were several times in this restaurant (in the bar on the ground floor) - thus considered to be good customers (even in fact the place is overpriced). Last month we followed our "tradition" to have a sunday-dring with snacks in Rapperswil and choose la Scala again. We have ordered some wine and some snacks (which arrived with some bread).... 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.

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
