“Very happy - thank you!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2011

My boyfriend proposed during our stay at Alla Torretta and had primed them in advance. They were very sweet about it and provided us with champagne and red roses as well as lots of good wishes. Our room was lovely, very large and breakfast was good too. It is a little way out of Bellagio but if you're relatively fit walking isn't too much of a problem and, as parking in Bellagio can be tricky, it's not a bad solution. Free wireless was great too. Would certainly recommend this place - thanks for helping to make it so memorable! Grazie tanto :-)

I would have rated this higher but for the arduous trek to and from town 25 minutes into town at a brisk pace but definitely more like 40-45 uphill and if you are returning at night, bring a flashlight.

The Alla Torretta was a lovely B&B (once we found it!) We unfortunately forgot to mapquest this one before leaving and no one in the center of Bellagio seemed to know of it. It is a fair distance uphill from the center of town. Fortunately, a local took pity on us and made a phone call to the B&B and they came down to pick us up.

The views up the winding road were stunning, and the path down to town was a pleasant walk (we took a bus back up). Our room was very large and we were lucky enough to have the balcony over the main door. There is a pizzeria in the basement which served quite reasonably priced meals and the staff was quite friendly.

We did not get a feeling for the family that owned the hotel, only saw the gentlemen who was always quite busy. Breakfast was well stocked and we were comfortable with our stay. The TV in our room did not work, and we could not connect to the internet however.

Room Tip: Ask for the room with the balcony.

Great hospitality by Corrado and members of his family. We could use the internet free of charge during our stay. The rooms were clean and the beds/pillows comfortable..chocolates in the room were a nice touch,
Breakfast was adequate but a better quality coffee/espresso machine could be purchased
for a better tasting coffee. The grounds were well maintained and the close proximity of the restaurant located downstaris was welcomed. Wonderful food//great selection// impressive!

Room Tip: rooms were found to be very quiet and comfortable

We stayed at Alla Toretta for one night. It is a lovely villa and very comfortable. The beds were firm and the pillows fluffy. We had a little plate of chocolates in the room as well as condoms in the night table! The owner was pleasant and engaging amd the restaurant in the lower level was excellent! The breakfast was adequate but the coffee machine needs improvement as the coffee was bitter. Overall a pleasant experiemce.

Very quaint, charming, historic house. We drove up from Venice after a stop at a B&B in the Verona region for a few days. Nothing could have compared us for the road to Bellagio. We fell in love with the family of Alla Torretta, even the children. One day the little boy played classical music on the piano for us. Beautiful. They provided a ride into the city and any information we needed. Plus sat and talked with us at night on the front porch about the history and culture of the region and their family. Very personable. We had 3 separate rooms- all very large with spacious bathrooms. I was a little skeptical about no air conditioning but found out with the location of the house, the large swing open windows and high ceilings, you do not miss it. The beds were comfortable. Bellagio has a small tourist tram that runs right next to the B&B. A great way to tour around plus get on and off in the city. Alla Torretta has a wonderful restaurant that we feel is not beat by any other in the region. The number of locals that come should be a good sign. I had the Chicken Cabonara- divine! The lasagna and pizza were excellent also. Would recommend highly.

Your review is beautiful, and I think it can also be very valuable to other customers they doubt on the air conditioning and the distance from Bellagio. thank you very much and we hope we can still be found chatting in a beautiful summer evening,

My mom and I stayed here for two nights to explore Bellagio and lake Como. Its a delightfully beautiful bed and breakfast. The house is beautiful and our room was very clean and well decorated. The hosts were warm, welcoming and very helpful. They even helped me trouble shoot connecting my iPhone to their wifi!

The only negative, is the building is made a marble and noise echoes into your room causing us to get woken up after we fell asleep and early in the morning. I'm a light sleeper, so I slept with ear plugs the second night and everything was fine. If you're a heavy sleeper, then it's nothing to worry about!

This b&b was great in every other way and I wouldn't let this minor inconvenience keep me away! I would recommend it!!

There is also a great Pizzeria downstairs, we ate there once and had a great dinner!
