Two other couples (all seniors) joined my wife and me for a Friday dinner at the Hollywood. We were seated promptly and served libations, but were disappointed in the minimal number of Finger Lakes wines. Our entree selections consisted of pan-seared cod (very good), the Hollywood scrod (excellent), lasagna (very good, and a huge portion), fried seafood combination (just OK),... More

We had heard of the Hollywood for years but somehow never managed to get there until now. My husband was excited. They open at 4:30 PM, we arrived at 5:00 . . . without reservations. There were only 3 tables of diners in the entire place . . . yet they sat us in a corner up against a wall... More

This is your typical American Italian restaurant with a "noodles and gravy" menu. While the chicken parm is good, the sauce is nothing special and I can get better at Wal-Mart. We were here for a gathering of my husband's Italian in-laws. He said "It looks like a dive." when we drove up. He was right but apparently his in-laws... More

Very good food and most pasta made on premise. Long standing business that is family owned and operated. Staff was extremely friendly and efficient. The ravioli was outstanding!

I have never been disappointed. Good food, service and prices. The veal parmigiana is excellent. There is no wait when you make reservations, unlike many restaurants that just try to get you to the bar.

My Italian boyfriend and I count this as one of our favorites! Love their manicotti and my boyfriend can never finish the lasagna! For him to rave about someone else's food is very rare.

My family has been going to this restaurant for years. They have excellent food and reasonable prices. It has been run by the same family for years passing down through generations. Highly recommend.

I have been an occasional diner at the Hollywood for over 20 years, and I am never disappointed. My latest experience reminded me that their pasta sauce is so good that I unconsciously make a Mmmmmmm....sound with every bite. This time we had the antipasto salad in addition to our dinner and it was fabulous as well...more than enough for... More

My family and I go to the Hollywood whenever we are in Auburn. They have amazing food and huge portions! Friendly staff and an old school atmosphere. I would have rated them excellent, except our last visit, I noticed the back of the seat of our chairs were very dusty. Otherwise, great experience as always!
