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 $50.00 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 $50 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.

We understand that LIFeSTYLE is unique and is not for everyone. We are sorry to hear that the experience you had was not enjoyable. Considering we serve a five course meal we do keep portion sizes smaller. Feeling uncomfortable after a long meal is not something anyone enjoys. As you noticed, we don't serve butter or olive oil. Nor, do... More

I recently enjoyed one of their private Trattoria dinners with a group of friends. The food was delicious, plated beautifully and the staff was absolutely lovely! The place doubles as a high end Italian food specialty store--featuring many of the very ingredients they use in their dinners. The dinner was so cozy and intimate and provides such a wonderful opportunity... More

The family style setting and meal were excellent. It was a nice experience meeting lots of interesting local folk and visitors. The risotto was especially good! The dinner experience is definitely European-- don't expect a fast meal but instead enjoy the food and company. We brought one of our best bottles of wine from the cellar and this was the... More

I had the pleasure of hosting a group at LIFeStyle this fall during a meeting in town. From the time you first walk in, you know to expect something different, and after having an amazing meal with dishes carefully prepared and rich with flavor, and service that was personalized and met every request, you can see that the passion of...

A fixed menu served to twenty-two people at a single, long table with food that challenged and pleased the chef to share with his guests. A unique experience with superb food and companions courageous enough to enjoy sharing the food and the company.

Nestled in the quaint town of Bedford, PA, Lifestyles brings a fresh approach to your typical dining experience. The Chef/owner brings forth his authentic Italian culinary skills to present a 5 course, pre-planned meal. Fresh mozzerella, lasagna, artisinal cheeses, gelato... Its Italy in a nutshell! In addition to phenomenal dishes, Lifestyle's communal table & BYOB combination opens the door to... More

Great meal with great service! Five courses that included excellent pasta and 3 types of aged organic cheese with 15 year old organic balsamic vinegar. I just returned from a week in San Francisco that included great meals and LifeStyle ranked right up there with the best--but LifeStyle's trattoria atmosphere wins out for informality and ambiance.
