They just started a special Dinner for Two service. Includes 1 appetizer, 2 entrees, and one dessert.....total cost $45. My wife and I shared a calamari, I had the pork loin and she had the bowtie gratinata.....topped off with the ice cream and brownie for dessert. Great dinner for a great price.

One of the reason's I continue to dine at Alodia's is consistency. The warm relaxing atmosphere, friendly attentive service and really good food make this a place to unwind any day of the week. The cannoli I had last week is one of the best I've had in a long time. In the mood for a great salad then try... More

This is a small restaurant with a good atmosphere. They get very busy on weekends, and there is sometimes a bit of a wait. The food is well crafted and everything I have had there has been delicious and cooked to perfection. The staff is excellent. Sometimes the food can take a little while if they are really busy, but... More
