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 August 17, 2014

We eat at Alodia's several times each year. We are yet to have an experience that is anything less than excellent. The staff is always courteous and attentive and the food is always some of the best we have anywhere. We cannot recommend this place highly enough.

“Open kitchen and lively, jovial ambiance!”
Reviewed August 11, 2014

We love the combination of Italian and American dishes. The presentation is creative enough to be considered upscale, but doesn't take away from the comforting homestyle cooking. The new healthy choices menu is a bonus!

“Great Saturday Meal”
Reviewed August 11, 2014

We frequent Alodia's and have always had a great meal. This time was no different. I started with a Caesar salad with anchovies (they brought it with artichokes the first time...not sure why but it was quickly corrected). Then had the pork chop which is best described as succulent and tasty. got veggies instead of orzo (beware if you don't like garlic). My wife had the penne with gorgonzola and duck breast. It was SOOOO good. She wouldn't let me finish it though and saved the second half for Sunday lunch. Oh well I know what to order next time.
Only wish they would take a reservation.

This is a good restaurant but not really sure it's the best in columbia. My wife and I have been several times and the service is good.

“Always a wonderful meal!”
Reviewed August 2, 2014 via mobile

Don't be fooled! Even though it is located in a strip mall, the food is amazing!! We visit Alodias when we want an excellent meal and don't want to have to drive all the way into Columbia!
Our last visit was for Sunday brunch. My veggie frittata was huge and filled with loads of fresh veggies. The kids loved their waffles and scrambled eggs. And my husbands Bow tie granita is filled with fresh shrimp and Tasso ham and spicy cream sauce.
It's also a great place for a quiet date night and girl's night out.
