“Very very good meal!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 22, 2014

This was our first time eating at Alodia's and we were not disappointed! The food, service and hospitality were wonderful, the owner even checked on us to make sure everything was satisfactory.
I had the bow tie pasta with shrimp and cream sauce and it was spectacular! The bread and our appetizer of calamari were both very good.
Our waiter Ryan also did a great job of making sure or glasses were full and checked on us regularly to see if we needed anything even though the restaurant was packed, it was Saturday evening.
This was a great experience and we will return in the near future!

“Food, Service, Location, and Attention to Detail - All Great Traits”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 22, 2014

Live right down the road from this place and just recently started visiting on a regular basis. The location is great is a quaint little shopping center and clean, safe atmosphere. Always plenty of wait and hostess staff on hand. The service is always great and the food was wonderful. Everything from the standard Spaghetti and Lasagna to special dishes.
Very reasonably priced and did I mention that the service was great.
Also have a nice rewards program that is constantly providing special offers.
Love this place and look forward to our next visit.

“Yummy”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2014

The staff was very friendly and the food was amazing. Our waitress took our order right away. The timing of the food was just right between course and she didn't let my glass run out of water, which is awesome. This is a must visit restaurant in Columbia.

“Company Christmas Party at Alodia's”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2014 via mobile

Our company again enjoyed the warmth and fabulous foods at this unique restaurant for our 2013 Christmas Party. From the appetizers all the way to the desserts we were extremely pleased and look forward to more company events with the Alodia's team. Working with Jordan to arrange our party was a true delight. I highly recommend Alodia's for your company events.
