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.

So good, I had the veal parm while my husband had the baked spaghetti. With a side salad and bread it's a solid meal with leftovers for lunch. The service couldn't be better, not possible. In the brutal South Carolina heat, you walk in, and are instantly calmed by the low lighting. They have wine specials on Wednesday, lucky us! Go, just go, you will be so glad you did.

At least 7 times out of about 20 dinners or lunches at Alodias included a bad food experience. Including being served a cold meal.

Fabulous place to eat! I had the Tuscany Chicken recently and it was the best I’ve ever had. They also sent me a $20 coupon for my birthday....what a treat!

Came for birthday dinner. Waited for 2 weeks, so we could fit into our schedule. As usual, it was worth the wait. Staff is great. Service was outstanding. Food was excellent as usual. Waiter gave a suggestion on a wine we had not had before-it was great.
