We had eaten here frequently until we moved away in 2007. We were pleasantly surprised to see it was still there and unchanged. Even the menu seemed familiar which just means if it works don't fix it. You will enjoy your dinner here and the good service that goes with it as well.

We went on a Saturday night and the place was packed. We ordered an appetizer each (Tuscan bread with seafood sauce for me and Ceasar salad for the Mrs.). I ordered baked ziti with sausage and my wife ordered the lasagna. Everything was average. Bread was served with the meal, it was standard spongy white bread with butter. The place... More

A delicious treat in downtown Saco, Me. We will be back again soon. Our friends made reservations and we got seated upon arriving. Our waitress Renee was a gracious host. She was friendly, attentive and knowledgeable. We had Polli parmigiana, Pesce alla paesana, Pollo Limone and Pollo con Scampi Diavola. All the dinners were good size and very flavorful. There...

We made our annual trip to Traditions Italian Ristorante and we were not disappointed. I had the seafood chowder and I split a veal Parmigiana main course with my wife. Our friend had the eggplant parmigiana. I tasted it and it was delicious. Traditions serves basic good Italian meal at very reasonable prices. I'll be back again next summer.

Over the past few days, we've gorged ourselves with seafood and needed a break. We read about Traditions, gave it a whirl and weren't disappointed. My wife had a pasta special while I had fettuccine and sausage. We both had the garden salad, which was very fresh and the house dressing was flavorful. My only beef was that the cranberry... More

After eating seafood for three days straight, we wanted something different, and we always are on the lookout for good Italian restaurants. Traditions certainly lived up to that! It's not large, but it is very comfortable and the people are friendly. We looked around and saw what we expected were mostly locals and regulars, but we're sure than "in season"... More

My wife, daughter and I returned once again, and it was fabulous! We absolutely enjoy this cozy restaurant, and it is one of our favorites. Again, we do make reservations each time. The food and service is really nice, and we drive from Augusta and will continue!
