LIFeSTYLE is always comfortable, delicious and affable; a well executed culinary adventure, celebration, and education, with the ease of coming over to a friend's home for dinner. Truly splendid.

We had a nice evening. Food was delicious, but portion size was a bit small. Liked the fact you could bring your own wine, but was hoping that they served a hearty Italian meal and not a chicken leg and thigh for $60

We had the pleasure of dining at LIFeSTYLE on July 14th. We had the most delightful dining experience! The chef was brilliant in the courses he created and it was a special touch when he came out to explain each one with such passion and enthusiasm. We had an appetizer of Crostini along with speck, an amazing vodka pasta, followed by a coffee rubbed tenderloin. The cheese plate and delicious dessert finished our meals. We had amazing conversations and met many new friends. The atmosphere was just the right size to allow guests to feel right at home and to encourage conversations among the diners. I would highly recommend making LIFeSTYLE a MUST on your adventures in Bedford! It is a quick drive from Bedford Springs and definitely worth it!! We can’t wait for our next trip!

What a terrific place! Stefan the owner is delightful. The food products are either locally grown and or imported from Italy. Reminded me of the movie "Big Night" but on a smaller, more intimate scale. Highly recommend.

Excellent 5-course Trattoria meal with a few unusual, interesting and tasty dishes, including a perfectly-sized cheese plate and delicious dessert. This is not a meal to be rushed. Enjoy dining with complete strangers who are friends by the end of the meal. This lovely specialty shop transforms into a dining room for about 34 persons at three tables for their trattoria dining. We were given wine suggestions (BYOB) to pair with the dinner that the chef was planning a few days in advance, which was quite helpful. This is individual service, not buffet style and not family style. Deserves 5 stars.

Best Italian food I've ever had! The place is awesome and we had a blast getting to know the others at our family style table. If you want to experience what true italian food taste like this is the place to go. We will definitely be back!

We attended a Trattoria dinner with friends and had a fabulous time. The food was delicious, the service was great, the price was very reasonable. I think the entire experience could be enhanced by having Italian music (or even jazz) playing in the background. During our meal Pop Hits (i.e. Justin Timerlake) was playing in the background, which seemed a bit out of place. The ambiance could also be kicked up a notch with the addition of candles on the tables and dimmed lighting. Overall, we had a great time and will return again.

Unique experience.

Menu is set by owner for an authentic Italian cuisine. Priced correctly with BYOB only drinks and no corkage. Stefano is a great host and the chef delivers a surprise.

Vegan options available for one of our attendees.

High end Italian specialty items available before and after dining in the shop.

It was a nice idea but the food was not great. The restaurant is in a store. It seemed like they took products from the shelves and made dinner with it. So nothing seemed homemade. I went with girlfriends and you sit with other people at your table. It is a nice idea, but we were not able to catch up because you are talking to everyone at the table. Next time, we will go somewhere else.

Wonderful experience. Good value top quality. Easy location to find. Only concern is that the town rolls up their sidewalks by 6:00 PM. So there is little to do if you arrive early. Love the fact it's BYOB.

We had gone to Lifestyles years ago when it was a new restaurant. At that time, the food was scrumptious and plentiful. We returned a few years ago and it was still very good. This dinner was very disappointing. The portions were extremely small. The entree of chopped chicken in "bechamel sauce" looked more like chicken and gravy, and was bland. It was almost an insult to Italian cooking. We used to get an actual salad. This time the salad was about 1/2 cup on the side of the chicken plate. Cheese course was a joke. Three 1 inch pieces of regular cheese. No grapes or crackers. So sad to see this great restaurant fall so hard.

Family style, which encourages interaction with people you do not know. That is part of the attraction; it is very social.

The food was amazing, so fresh and tasty. It was fun not to know what was going to be on the menu until the day of. The hosts were great and so was the service. The courses were timed very well. We were a bit hesitant about sitting with a large group but ended up sitting next to a really fun couple which made the evening even more enjoyable. Being able to bring your own wine was a huge plus. I highly recommend this as a great alternative to the pricier resort restaurants. Definitely a good deal for the price. Will definitely return again next time we visit Bedford Springs and will recommend this little gem to all!
