What We’re About
“Italian Cooking the Way it Used Be”
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. Home made sauces and Abruzzo 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.
What’s Happening At Alodia’s
It has been a while since I last wrote to you. I wanted to share some updates on the family and the new location. Firstly, Betsy, Michael, Andrew, and Kathleen are all doing great! The kids are growing up so fast and are enjoying the fall weather for sure. Michael is 4, Andrew will turn 3 on November 11th and, Kathleen will be 1 at the end of January. Time certainly goes by fast. I have included pictures of the kids :). Betsy is doing great and is an amazing mother and wife, who is my rock and best friend. Watching her juggle the kids’ routines and helping to plan the new store is truly inspiring. How she does it, I’ll never know!
As you know, we are currently under construction for the second location of Alodia’s! We are all very excited and we are planning to open sometime in January of 2018. I will keep you posted as construction nears completion– it will be wonderful. We continue onward, ever striving to reach excellence in all we do. I couldn’t begin to express how proud our team makes me. The team at Alodia’s is dedicated to providing you with an excellent experience from the moment you walk in, until the moment you leave. We have added many new faces in anticipation of opening Alodia’s-Lexington. You will see them as you dine with us this holiday season. Our goal is to train as many new members at the current location, so when we open in Lexington the guests’ experience will be a good one.
In other news, Alodia’s will be turning 10 years old in March of 2018! I can’t believe it. Look out for new and exciting things for the current store around that time. I can’t say anything as of yet, but you will love it– I promise! Thank you all for your undying loyalty. It is an honor to serve you each and everyday. Rest assured we are always hard at work, turning this restaurant into an amazing business that will delight you time and time again for generations to come. Onward~
