I stayed in The Alla Toretta for two nights in mid-September 2012. The hospitality of the couple (Corrado and Sara) who own this B&B is a big part in it's high rating. I was staying on my own and arrived by bus from Como, and Sara came and picked me up from Bellagio to take me up to Visgnola where the B&B is situated. I was fortunate enough to be given the suite with the balcony, the room is wonderfully large, cool, with parquet flooring, and the views from the balcony are beautiful. The wi-fi was fast and with no interruptions. The breakfast is simple but plentiful, it is a B&B after all, not a hotel.
I ate in the restaurant in the basement twice, the food is excellent value for money (most meals around 9Euros), and the portions huge, but delicious, and the service very pleasant.
The most amazing part however came at the end of my stay. I was leaving on a Sunday, and misread my time tables and missed the bus to Como where I was supposed to be taking a train to Milan and from there to Genoa, and was destined to miss my trains, when I told Corrado took me on his scooter and drove me (case and all) for 40 minutes to Como! The man has a business to run and took out 1.5 hours of his day and went well beyond any reasonable duty as a hotelier.
The walk to and from Bellagio involves walking on the road for half the walk nearest the B&B, Took me about 20 minutes (I'm a fast walker) taking the Via Valassina road, I didn't try Via Volta.
