Since moving to the area 4 years ago, we have found Alodia's to be a top, if not the best, Italian restaurant in the area. Service is always great and the Food is awesome; especially the Mahi Fish. Always predictable and they make you feel special. A must see establishment. John C, Lexington..

First visit here was absolutely sensational to say the least! We ate at the bar and had a blast. The bartender was absolutely great, very funny and friendly. The food was absolutely amazing. Best Italian cuisine I've had in SC. Would recommended this place to anyone, and definitely plan to come back.

Alodia's is a local find for good Italian food, service and a quiet atmosphere. The food is always consistently good and the personnel are extremely friendly and qualified.The restaurant is in a strip shopping center that friends of ours introduced us to, and if we didn't know they were there, we would never have found this local gem.

I really like the atmosphere of Alodia's - it is elegant but the patrons can be dressed casually, and the light music in the background is a relief compared to places with loud music that makes it impossible to carry on a conversation. Our server (I believe it was Dustin) was very knowledgeable about the menu, anticipated our needs for... More

Bar and waiting area is smallish but adequate. Our wait was under ten minutes. Hostess was pleasant and bar tender friendly and fast. Server was just right, showing... More

Our party of four returned & had another wonderful dinner at Alodia's. One of our party had special dietary needs & there was no problem with the staff addressing those needs. Addison was a wonderful server. The wine list is fine, & the entree's were superb. I think this is the best lasagna anywhere. This restaurant has never disappointed me... More

A hidden jewel of a place, Adolia's is charming with great food and service. We had calamari, salads, lasagna, cheesecake and coffee. I had Barone Fini Pinot Grigio from the area of Italy we visited last summer. Just a lovely lunch!
