“I've had better”
Reviewed August 19, 2013

My hubby and I went here the other night for a quick dinner. It was.... ok. The steaks were cooked beautifully BUT our baked potatoes had a very funny taste. At first I thought it might be the butter that was on them but closer inspection showed that they were burnt. It's very dark inside almost too dark. I don't like having to squint and lean across the table to see my husband! The service was good, our waitress was very friendly and helpful but I think next time we good out, we'll choose a different restaurant.

“Real Italian Food”
Reviewed June 8, 2013

The restaurant was crowded on Saturday night but well worth the 15 minute wait. Every dish was great! We enjoyed red sauce and pesto sauce and the meatballs are just like mamma used to make. The wait staff is very friendly and efficient. The reception people could have smiled more but perhaps they have never had time to taste the food. This is a must stop if you are hungry and a bargain to boot!

“Can't figure out what is so appealing about bad food and bad service.”
Reviewed May 14, 2013

This happens to be quite the popular place, and for some it may be an institution or have some appeal that makes some believe there must be a tradition to come here. Really? Maybe its just all the college kids. Service is amatuerish and slow. If any food is hand made its the tossed salad. The pasta is overcooked mush. The marinara is thin and tasteless. The fries are greasy. At some point most people should outgrow bad habits and go eat someplace where they can appreciate real food prepared right.

“Good Value”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

The Hollywood is a nice fmily restaurant with good food and good atmosphere for groups. It is not a place for a romantic date. It can be loud in the dining room. The service is excellent.
