As a former employee of an Italian restaurant back in Boston, I can say that this restaurant serves original Italian food and yes, the taste is fantastic to go along with great service and ambience as well. This is not your "friendly" McDonald, so don't expect the price to be cheap as such. Here the good old saying of "you... More

I picked up a to-do order as a reward on my second visit. The pasta was delicious but the lunch portions were smaller than I expected. Very nice bartender and host. Very classy dining room too.

It may not be Italian in NYC, but it is great Italian for this area. I am not a chain person. This is definitely a nice elegant place to go to.

I have come numerous times with family and friends. The food is excellent and even if there is a waiting period it is well worth it. They are opening a location in Lexington, SC and can't wait.

Great Italian restaurant located near to home. Quality of the meals is always excellent, they get a lot of repeat business out of our neighborhood. Excellent service, quality food, nice atmosphere.

We love popping in on a weeknight with casual clothes for a delightful meal! I had a steaming hot bowl of French Onion soup with a delightful crusty bread. My husband enjoyed his favorite .... lasagne. Both delicious. Love the cozy atmosphere, icy cold martini and excellent service.

Description
In order to provide the best and most efficient service possible, we will no longer be accepting standard reservations or call-ahead seating. This new policy will help us ensure that we can accommodate all of our loyal guests in the most efficient way possible. We will continue to honor limited reservations as part of our VIP membership program. We look forward to seeing you at the restaurant and creating new memories with you and your family. 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.
