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.

“Absolutely Delicious!”
Reviewed May 19, 2014

What a wonderful surprise found in a shopping center near Ballentine, SC. This was truly one of the best meals we've had in a very long time. We ordered the Flounder Beurre Blanc and Seafood Risotto... Simply said, DELICIOUS! Excellent service accompanied the incredible food made for a delightful evening. While it is a rather small restaurant, which makes it a bit on the loud side, they seem to have all the right people in place that make the service, food and atmosphere come together beautifully. Highly recommend!

“Wonderful experience always”
Reviewed May 18, 2014

For well prepared food and excellent service, Alodia's is the place! We have never had a bad experience there. However, because of its popularity, it is best to get there early for dinner to avoid a wait.

“Nothing Special”
Reviewed May 17, 2014 via mobile

Nothing was bad, but there was nothing special either. Had seafood risotto, but t was mushy. Lobster ravioli had nice lobster chunks but sauce mediocre. Seriously disappointed after the great reviews on here. would not return.

“Memorable Dining Experience”
Reviewed May 16, 2014

What we thought was just going to be Thursday night dinner turned into so much more! The best waiter, Matt, was knowledgeable with wine and recommender "The Crusher" Pinot Noir. Perfect for us. Food was very well prepared, tasty, and delivered in a timely, discreet manner so we could enjoy a pleasant meal and conversation without interruption. Decor is cozy, busy, and inviting. We will be back! Soon!
