I like the food,price, and service. Seems like a nice local family type restaurant. Have always enjoyed dining here. Wish the menu was a bit larger. We noticed the room was too cool; put my coat on. Yes I will go back. All the patrons remark about food.

We have eaten in many Italian places but this one is the top of the list. What a pleasant surprise we had when I got a voucher for a free meal here and decided to try it. The atmosphere is noisy but fun, the food was incredible! The service was the best around and the owner even made the rounds... More

The food was excellent and the value was very good. The seating isn't the best but it doesn't take away from the quality of the food. Even with two glasses of wine and two entrees, the bill only came to $67.00. No complaints from us. We will make our way here the next time we are in town.

The food at Traditions is very good, very well cooked, well served and generous portions. Their mussels are some of the most flavorful I have experienced. What takes the edge off a little is the uncomfortable seating, for 2 the seating is adequate but for 4 it is too cramped and therefore takes the edge off the dining experience. The... More

My waitress was not very attentive, but when I did get her attention, she was O.K. The food is American-Italian, not authentic Italian. Lots of red sauce (gravy), and the pasta is usually cooked just fine. Plenty of seafood and good grilled steaks. I'd go back in a heartbeat.

This warm and cozy restaurant with great service had the most amazing Italian food. The huge salad, warm bread and delicious veal limonene was excellent. Prices were very good, better than other restaurants' in the area. A great change from seafood. Try it, you'll love it.

Date night with my husband was fine here, although my dinner was sub-par. Service was good. The atmosphere was okay, although there were a few super obnoxious bar-goers (seemed to be regulars) going on about things I wouldn't want my kids to hear, and it's a small place, so there was no option but to hear it all. The bartenders... More

I found this restaurant with my GPS when I was staying at the Ramada in Saco. Great family restaurant with a lot of menu choices. Not to expensive either.Great cannolis.

Old style atmosphere with delicious food. I ordered the baked shrimp & scallops and the dish was fabulous. About 15 outside of Old Orchard Beach, Traditions is well worth it!
