One can always depend on the Hollywood. In Cortland we have a multitude of Italian Restaurants, largely because we have a large Italian population. Hollywood ranks right up there with the others. Food is very good and very dependable. Service is excellent. it's a must do experience if you're in the mood for Italian food. Owners or family members are... More

We were greeted with smiles and warmth that continued throughout the evening with our server. The food was good...we had a variety...burgers, pasta, veal. It was casual & comfortable.

I have never had pasta from here that I have enjoyed, unfortunately. I guess it's because we have so many good Italian places to choose from in Cortland that have much better tomato sauce. In any case, this place is the best place to go for a cheeseburger in Cortland, and their hand-cut fries are great too! They make a... More

I went to the Hollywood as a teenager and still go there regularly. Good place for locals and college kids to get a good meal or have a few drinks.

Seated promptly, I had the Philly chicken, and my wife eggplant. Both were fixed to perfection. Bread came with dinners we ordered. Had a desert. Plan to spend $20 per person. The first time I ate hear it was very disappointing. My wife convinced me to give it another try. My lesson avoid this restaurant when they are busy, and... More

We hit the Hollywood Restaurant on 9/30/2014 during a NY Finger Lakes fall foliage trip, arriving around 6:30 on a Tuesday nite. We had been to this restaurant several years earlier as my daughter went to college in this town. Prompt seating by a friendly hostess, and we had cocktails in our hands 5 minutes after seating. I chose the... More

Recently,we took family to the Hollywood Restaurant in Cortland, NY. Our experience there was mixed. While their sauce is delicious and the pasta cooked properly and the portions are huge, many other food items were over cooked. The veal and eggplant parmigiana's were both over done in the fryer, as were the fries served with a hamburger and a BAKED... More
