Ca' Spiga is the perfect B&B if you want a more authentic Italian experience and to interact with the locals. The owners and their family are the epitome of hospitable. As soon as we booked the room Alessandro was in contact with us providing directions and things to do in Lake Como.
When we arrived at Ca' Spiga we were greeted by Andrea who was super friendly and provided us with coffee and chatted with us for awhile. Afterwards he gave us a tour of the B&B which is soooo charming and has great views of the lake! Breakfast, as everyone has said, is delicious! They have everything you could want and most of it is homemade or comes from their parents butcher shop. It is nice bumping into other guests at the breakfast table and having that social interaction. We spent every night of our stay drinking wine with Andrea or some of the other guests.
Laglio is a quiet town, but great for a relaxing day and trying to spot George Clooney. Andrea and Alessandro's parents own a butcher shop that also sells wine and other small foods and is about a 10-15 min walk from the B&B. Like their sons, they were extremely hospitable and when we told them we were guests at the B&B they offered us samples of the salami and bresaola and chatted with us for awhile in a mix of English, Spanish and Italian.
There are really only 2 restaurants near there. We loved the restaurant La Locanda so much the first night that we went back our last night and didn't try the other one, but I'm sure it is also good.
If you arrive by bus make sure you pack light as there are many stairs to climb to get up to the B&B unless you go the back way where it is a little easier to climb up the hill. It is a little confusing at first, but not too hard to find and is the brightest place on the street so it is easy to spot.
My only issue is that we didn't have a car so while the bus stop was close by, they only came every hour or two. It is not a main town on the lake so it is not the most convenient location without a car. If you have a car I think it would be much easier to get around.
My recommendation would be that they provide guests with an updated bus schedule and offer tickets for sale to make planning the day and getting around a little easier.
Overall, I really can't say enough about how hospitable and friendly they are at Ca' Spiga and in the town of Laglio in general. Highly recommend this place!
