Eight of us took the Gray line Heidiland and Liechenstein Tour from Zurich. When we arrived in Rapperswill they had a parent/child race going on and it was pouring rain. The restaurant we were advised to go by our tour guide was packed. We looked around town and found Marco's. We decided to have hot minestrone soup and wine. Good... More

Seriously, i cannot understand the positive comments, this place is absolute nothing special at all ! And in my opinion not worth the money....it is not even cheap, but the food is quite disappointing after reading all these positive comments. Not worth the visit, Rapperswil has much better to offer !

Watch chef Marco prepare your meal in front of your eyes! Delicious, unique recipes in a casual atmosphere. Prices range from 20-30 CHF per dish. The spaghetti with Grapa, almonds and raisins was very tasty.

WOW - that it the best pasta you'll ever get! Do not as for the Menu, just let Marco decide what he thinks fits you best! Just great!

Marco is a one man show. All the seat were taken in his restaurant (about 25) and he took orders, brought starters and drinks, cooked entrees, chatted up the customers, and brought the bill... All by himself! Pasta was great! Sauces were tasty. And the price was great!

Love the concept here, He Takes your order (without writing it down) for starters and mains and drinks, cooks it right in front of you and then serves you the dish you ordered, there were 36 covers in when we were there completely full and he remembered everyone's order. I was impressed with that alone. The food was awesome, Spaghetti... More

The kitchen is in the middle of the room surrounded by a bar counter, where you eat your food. The owner/Chef, Mr. Marco is then cooking your dish right in front of you and i gotta say - this guy is coolness personified. No matter how many people are in the restaurant, he churns out plate after plate of outstanding... More

Pasta dishes are cooked with lots of fantasy and tasty ingredients in front of you and the result is amazing. Cannot miss it if around Rapperswil.
