“Italian food par excellence”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2013

Alodia's is an excellent Italian restaurant. The staff is very friendly and the servers are professional. We drove from downtown Columbia to dine there and it is well worth the drive.If you like Italian food, this is the place to go.

“Hands down, best in the Columbia area”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2013

There's just something about Italian food that is always good. Alodia's takes that to the next level. Had the pheasant special and everything was awesome; even the things that people don't generally write about, like the broccoli and the risotto. This is a place that the wife and I will go to again. We actually can't wait to go back.

“If you haven't eaten here you have NO idea what you are missing!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2013

Little hidden gem tucked away in a strip mall, don't let the location fool you. Simply amazing. Great menu, knowledgable wait staff and an attentive owner who frequents your table to make sure you are always pleased. Great fresh specials that change weekly based on freshness of ingredients. Great date night!

“A wonderful Saturday dinner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2013

A couple of our friends wanted us to try Alodia's, so we scheduled a dinner double date for Saturday night. I had a hard time deciding what to get as it all sounded wonderful, and the specials were very interesting. I choose the blackened ma-hi and it was light and made my tongue do a happy dance. We had the key lime pie for dessert and I can still remember how awesome it tasted. We will definitely go back as I want to try more of the dishes. The service was wonderful as well.
