popular local eatery

Traditions is a popular local spot for Italian food- like your mama made it. So popular, in fact, that we got there extra early when it opened- and we had a choice of booths. I guess by 5:30 is when the place really fills up. I liked the cozy traditional corner restaurant feeling- the place... read more

Had a wonderful meal here (June 13, 2015), on a drive from Maine to Rhode Island. It was a great stop: easy access off the highway, convenient across the street parking, terrific wait staff, and a wonderful meal! We had veal limon and veal marsala and both were excellent. The veal limon over pasta (I think of veal francaise) is... More

I had the Sausage with Peppers over Linguine and my wife had the Eggplant Parm over Linguine. Also had an appetizer (Meat Pie - would not recommend) and desert. 2 entrees, appetizer and desert came to $50 with tax and tip.

We arrived on a weekday evening around 6 pm. The restaurant was busy, but there were open tables. We were greeted by a friendly and efficient host, who seated us and served us bread and water. As it turned out, that's all we had. Our server arrived and asked if we would like drinks. When we said that the water... More

I absolutely love Traditions! I order the same thing every time I go - veal marsala. So good! The wine inventory is excellent, the food (I usually taste my companion's meal so I know it's all good) is consistently outstanding and the prices are very fair. It's a small restaurant, and it can be loud in there, but it's so... More

Last evening was the 5th time we have had dinner here in the last two years. When they open at 5:00 pm, you better be there on time, because the booths fill up quickly. The bread is homemade, which starts things off! Their various meals are very good and usually there are left overs... The price for 3 dinners was... More

Very good local small town Italian restaurant. Chicken parmigiano is the go to dish. Red sauce is very flavorful. Nightly specials vary the choices but the regular menu is broad enough for the size of restaurant. Ambience is cozy but small , do not bring party larger than '6 because tables are tight and not made for spacious dining. Do... More

We had a delicious meal, and warm and friendly service from S at the bar. This was an impromptu visit and we'll be back again, thank you!

My in-laws have been going to this place for years and a few years back, we decided to join them. Now, we go a few times a year for every special occasion. Every time we go, we love it! The food is consistently good and always hot and flavorful! The service is great. Prices have gone up a little, but... More

Loved this small (might want to make reservations before you go or at least call) cozy Italian restaurant. The restaurant is mostly booths with a bar on one side. They have a specials board and the waiter is happy to explain each one. I loved how at the end of each booth there was a hat/ coat rack. Not something... More
