Description: 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.

“Sophisticated banquet with companiable strangers”
Reviewed October 13, 2013

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. Our second amazing meal in a small town, meals we would have expected more in Montreal or San Francisco.

“Dinner outside the box!”
Reviewed October 12, 2013

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 socialize with other guests; bringing the elements of laughter, friendship, and conversation back to the dinner table.

If you're up for a twist on your dining experience-- Lifestyles is the place!

“Family and friends dinner at LifeStyle”
Reviewed September 16, 2013

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.

Such a nice experience. The food was excellent and the atmosphere was very comfortable. We had a nice dinner conversation with the other guests while we ate. Everyone was great to talk.

“Great time”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

The owner made necessary changes for dinner due to diet requirements. And it was wonderful! I have been there twice now, and love it each time. Great company and BYOB, which is nice. Stefano talks about the food he's serving and that's great fun!
