Adam and Betsy Huneau, owners *********** Alodia's Cucina Italiana is a restaurant born from the love of an Italian family. Proprietor Adam Huneau's first restaurant is sure to wow taste buds with his authentic Italian Cuisine comprised of recipes that have been pulled from the pages of his family's cookbook. Named after his Great-Grandmother, Alodia's fare and ambiance resounds with the smells and tastes of Old Italy. Fresh sauces and homemade pastas are the foundation of the menu that brought generations together. Adam is devoted to making his restaurant as inviting and warm as his own family's kitchen. It was the love of food and family that allowed Alodia to cook for her nine children, even through the struggles of the Great Depression and World War II. It was her food that strengthened her children, but it was her love that strengthened her family. Adam and his wife Betsy are proud to bring Alodia's food to a new generation. We hope that you will join us at Alodia's Cucina Italiana for Italian food that dazzles the taste buds and warms the soul.. Brunch on Sundays: 11am-2pm. Dinner: 5pm-9:30pm.

Reviewed April 7, 2013

This place has great TA reviews for a reason; the value is terrific, and the service is as good as any major city name restaurant!! Ask about the special, and be prepared to order it. The prices are reasonable for such great italian food. The wines are priced reasonably as well.

“Cozy and friendly”
Reviewed March 31, 2013

I always love the feeling when I walk in and love the feeling when I walk out. The whole time in between is warm, comfortable, cozy, romantic, with a splash of friendly and knowledgeable wait staff. The food melts in your mouth as I feel like I have been sitting somewhere in Little Italy, among a neighborhood of friends. My favorite in Columbia!

“A restaurant to be proud of!”
Reviewed March 29, 2013

What a wonderful restaurant! Great food! Great service! We live in the neighborhood and come to Alodia's quite frequently. Yesterday I came with a group of girlfriends for lunch. One of my friends had never been to Alodia's before and she said when her out of town family came for their next visit. Alodia's was where she was going to take them. It is just that --- a restaurant to be proud of!

“Lovely local Italian Restaurant”
Reviewed March 18, 2013

This restaurant is great! In a land of chain restaurants, Alodia's stands out by being local and providing great meals and wonderful service. It is not on the beaten path so it attacks a kind of 'neighborhood' crowd...even though we drove about 5 miles to get there so not really close by.
Would recommend!
