“Great atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2013

If you love historic buildings, antiques, welcoming hosts and a warm atmosphere totally unlike a hotel, then this is your place. Yes, it's outside Bellagio but this is factored into the price. As a couple in their 50s (reasonably fit), walking to and from Bellagio is not a problem. It gives you time to smell the roses, enjoy the cobblestone walkway and marvel at the beautiful buildings and countryside. The bed was comfortable in a large room with plenty of hot water in the bathroom. Breakfast was more than enough: tea/coffee, croissants, rolls, cereal, fresh fruit, cheese and yoghurt. We loved this place, especially the friendly helpful hosts and fantastic view of the close snow capped mountains from our room. Great pizzeria downstairs has well priced meals too. This is not Bellagio. This is the next best thing and so close.

Room Tip: Room 3 had a fantastic view of the mountains

The room was very large, however the place was very old and out of the way from central Bellagio. Rooms are on the first floor with no elevator. Views of the lakes were minimal. The owners are very nice.

Stayed here for 2 nights whilst in Bellagio, good value simple accommodation (less than half the price of other highly rated options) and welcoming owners and staff.

Breakfast is provided but is very basic, it's quite a way out of Bellagio - about 5 minutes drive but 30 mins walk (as we discovered the day our car broke down - many thanks to Sarah for helping us find a mechanic to fix it though!). It is however just down the road from the top-rated restaurant in Bellagio - Salice Blu, which we highly recommend trying if you are staying here (even if the meal will probably come to as much as your nights accommodation).

Room Tip: Room 1 is the front room with the balcony, Room 5 is at the back and has a leaky shower cubicle

We stayed here for only one night and we loved it. If you like to stay in an old Villa with nice owners and staff and a delicious inhouse pizzeria, go there!
We stayed in the really big room No. 1 with balcony. The bed is typically italian, soft but okay, the bathroom is spacious and there is room for 4 people. The breakfast is okay. Perfect if you like to be a bit away from town in a nice little village with charming little streets, best if you have a car.

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.
