The entire family loves the focaccia at Osteria Vista. It isn't strictly on the menu but if you ask nicely you should be able to get it. We just had the one with Parma. The team is nice, the location great (especially in summer) and prices reasonably by Swiss standards.

I ate dinner at the Osteria Vista, an Italian restaurant, with some of my colleagues. It is located below the Hotel Marina, but you do not need to be a guest to eat there. There was a good selection on the menu, but it is not in English. The waiter was very helpful with interpretation. I had a pasta dish... More

Wonderful views across the marina and Lake Zurich. Super professional, fast and friendly staff. Prices, for Switzerland, very reasonable. We had the pizzas and they were fantastic. Gelato was also wonderful. Good kids menu.

We had a dinner at Osteria vista last night and it was a very pleasant experience. Our waiter was excellent, a top quality customer service. The menu was very appealing. I had a beef carpaccio as a starter, which was an excellent choice. The main dish, pesce misto was not the best dish ever, but rather satisfactory, but then again... More

I was taken here as part of a large group from work and it is in a stunning location on Lake Zurich. As it was a pleasant September evening the restaurant had laid out two tables for us to choose from, one outdoor and one indoor. As we thought it might get chilly later on we decided to take the...

Having been there a few times already, I never had a bad experience. The place is usually quite booked but the staff still manages to be at your table quickly. Food is also served quickly and the servings are good for a regular eating person.

Came here with our grown up children and a friend. Very nice ambience and full for a Sunday night. Good attentive service and a wide menu including pizzas and pasta. Food was well presented and very tasty. One of the best Italian restaurants in the area. Will come again and recommend.

Description
In the centre of the harbour promenade of Lachen is the Osteria Vista, the centrepiece of the Marina Lachen. Fresh wood oven pizzas are our speciality. Fine pasta, meat and fish dishes complete the attractive menu, which is entirely devoted to the theme "Bella Italia". The warmly designed interior, the open kitchen, the sweeping view and the relaxed atmosphere enchant guest from near and far. The Osteria is the venue for every day and every event. Buon appetito!
