AT OUR TRATTORIA...the food is traditional Italian. There is no menu, the service is casual and the price is fixed. Everyone is seated at the same table where five different courses are served. We begin dinner with an appetizer, followed by the first dish (pasta or risotto), second dish accompanied by a side (pork, beef, chicken, lamb, salmon... it depends on what we feel like cooking that night!!!), then we finish the meal with a delightful cheese plate including pairings, dessert and espresso. The dinner is perfectly complimented by a bottle of your favorite wine, which our guests are encouraged to bring. Although we do not provide the wine, we will happily make suggestions about what to bring to accompany that night's meal. We do not charge a corking fee. Every night is a unique and wonderful trip for the senses, showcasing the different flavors and traditions of Italy. The cost is $55.00 per person with service included. Our menu changes for each dinner, so please let us know when making your reservations if you have any questions or if you have any dietary restrictions that we should be aware of. Due to limited seating, reservations are required and we recommend making your arrangements several weeks in advance. In addition to our weekly Trattoria, LIFeSTYLE is available for your private events and parties any night of the week except Saturdays, which we reserve for our weekly dinner. For parties of ten or more, the price is $55 per person and we can accommodate up to twenty-two people per event. We generally serve a five course, fixed menu dinner as described above, but we are always willing to customize the meal to best suit your special event.

This was an extraordinary restaurant. It was unlike any other place I have ever been to. It made us feel like we were back in Italia all over again not to mention the food was to die for. The staff was great and we plan on coming back again very soon. I highly recommend this for everyone. If you love... More

we love the idea of two dinners/wk, pris fix, homey, etc., so our expectations were high. But $55 is a bit steep for what is really 3-4 quite modest sized courses. By the way, since when did coffee become a course? The food was good but not special, so the experience is worth one visit, but more...?

Gourmet Italian food store by day, wonderful dining by night! We were visiting Bedford Springs with friends and wanted a different dining experience. LIFeStyle delivered! The six of us were seated with a family of six others, but that's where the "family style" ends. Each course was served to us individually by friendly servers, with lots of time for drinking...

My husband was hesitant to dine family style, but enjoyed the entire experience due to the lovely people who joined us, and the delicious food served by Stefano and his staff. A fantastic evening, we'll be back!

Wow!!! This Italian restaurant in Bedford is absolutely the best. Chef Stefano prepares authentic Italian dishes using fresh ingredients from Italy. The mozzarella is to die for! The restaurant is a store during the day and he only serves dinner a couple days a week.

Highly recommend and don't forget it's BYO! Great staff and food was excellent! They offered a choice of two pasta dishes so my wife and I each got one so we could taste both. We couldn't decide which we liked better but both agreed we couldn't have gone wrong with either choice. I would definitely return and recommend to anyone!

Such a fun venue to share a delicious meal! Being seated at a large table with strangers provides an opportunity to meet new people in a casual, relaxed atmosphere. It was obvious that not only does Stephano love what he does, he is also quite good at it! Buon Appetito!!!

If you are in Bedford PA then you need to experience the Lifestyle trattoria that happens each weekend. If you have traveled to Italy then you certainly need to have this experience because eating at lifestyle is like eating in Italy. Stephano recreate his Lifestyle store by day into a trattoria at night. The trattoria is complete with wonderful food... More

We went there to celebrate our anniversary with friends and had a wonderful evening. Each course was delicious with beautiful presentation. So glad we were finally able to experience this. Stefano does a fabulous job of putting together a great meal. Will definitely make plans to enjoy this again!
