Casa La Scalinata is a "quaint" apartment block located on Salita Mella 21, Bellagio. Salita Mella is a cobblestoned " laneway" 2-3 metres wide and is one of the 3 main pedestrian thoroughfares connecting the upper road and the lower road of Bellagio.
Next to La Scalinata (less than a metre from your bedroom window) is Barchetta Ristorante which seats 70 to 80 people & is quite highly rated by trip advisor.
Directly opposite ( approx 3 metres from your front door/ windows) is is the Princess Cocktail Bar which caters for another 100 customers at a sitting.10 metres further up the laneway is another highly rated trattoria Ristorante Antico Pozzo.
If you are here to party 24x7 & don't mind noisy neighbours and being rtight in the action then Casa La Scalinata is for you.
At 8,9,10pm the conversations and banter happening around you, form part of the ambience of the place. At midnight, 1am 2am- not so.
However, if like us you are a family of 4 here to enjoy and relax in beautiful Bellagio then you should think about staying somewhere else!
Beware the "creative licence" taken by the real estate agents who market these & other similar apartments in Bellagio. 90% of the official photos linked to this Apartment are general photos of Bellagio- not views from your window!. Photos of different apartments are mixed up so what you see (& think you are getting!) is not necessarily what you actually rent for $220 Euro/night.
La Scalatina appears to be a modern trendy apartment. It has been renovated in part. What you don't see for example is that the "kitchenette" is a sink, microwave,bar fridge & stove in a cupboard 1 m x 1 m. There is no laundry (yes we should have read the fineprint!) An "iron" must be requested. We would have thought that for $220 Euro/night in the 21st century these things were basic necessities- apparently not.
