Have been to Traditions often it's one of our favorite restaurants. We've always had excellent service, a delicious basket of bread as soon as we sit down. The wine and beer are very reasonably priced with a good selection. My favorite meal is Pollo Limone and my husband's is Veal Marsalini we... read more

We go to Traditions often throughout the year. Small place so suggest you make a reservation. Popular with the "locals". Vacatoners coming to the beach in the summer as well as locals found this little hidden restaurant on Main St. in Saco. tI highly recommend Traditions to them for dining often. Good Veal Parm.

This was our 6th time returning, and it was just as outstanding as all the previous ones! We absolutely "Love" their food and atmosphere. It is a good idea to make reservations, because when they open at 5:00 pm, the folks arriving are constant.

My first impression about this place was "wow, I am in Goodfellas!" The place definitely had its character - it's not your cookie-cutter restaurant with high flow of people. The place has folks that come here all the time to hang out (and the place is not cheap). It's so cozy, you don't wanna leave. The food is to die... More

My family and I have found this Italian restaurant to be at the top of your list. We all had the chicken Parmesan with the home made bread, and salads. Once my Allagash white beer arrived with my orange slice, it peeked the meal. We Love it there!

Traditions serves excellently prepared Italian food with dishes ranging from Spaghetti and meatballs to lemon Picatta and steak Pizzeola. They offer many different sauce options like Fra Diaviolo, traditional marinara, lemon wine with the choice of linguine or angel hair pasta. Each dish is prepared to order and served hot.

A small restaurant on the Main Street of Saco, with super generous drinks and portions of food. The first time we went we were with friends and all had different things. All loved what they'd ordered, except the lasagna was a bit dry. This last time just two of us went. We reserved, but it was not as crowded as... More

Small restaurant with traditional older decor. Menu is traditional Italian - not very creative but typical choices. Good service. Average food. It was very busy and reservations are recommended. The tables are small and I would not recommend this restaurant for larger groups.

She did not understand so I showed her the menu, one item said pounded veal, another veal medallions and the limon just stated veal!! She said "oh, that's funny". I then asked if the coating on the veal parm was thick and she... More
