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.

We stopped here for late lunch on our way to the Outer Banks. We found it on Trip Advisor. It was not much to look at, but the food is delicious. My husband got the bacon chicken sandwich, and I got the veggie sandwich. They came with a small salad. The salad was fresh and delicious. We switched and each had a half of both sandwiches. They were both super yummy. The place was empty except for us and one other couple, but I imagine that closer toward dinner or lunch time, it is hopping. The staff was very nice and attentive. I would definitely stop here again if we get to visit Columbia again. Visited June 2015

Very good Italian

A friend suggested & trip advisor rated it #1 on the list, so I thought I would try it. Certainly not disappointed. The bread & butter delicious, salad fresh & crisp. The eggplant Parmesan very tasty & with just enough sauce and angel hair pasta. Worth the trip! Visited June 2015

Best Italian in the Midlands

this fantastic restaurant is a real hidden gem! Located in an unassuming store front in he Publix shopping center, you open the doors and you are in a different place. The nice ambience lends the option to dress up or go casual. We brought a small child and they made us feel welcome. They have a great wine selection, creative dishes and impeccable service. There is a wait during dinner, so call ahead. Visited July 2014

Never disappointed!

Alodia's is always wonderful from the service to the environment to the food. It's always a great place for family lunches and dinners or just date night. Visited June 2015

Dear Valued Guests-

I’d like to take time to say that on behalf of the entire Alodia’s family and myself, our hearts and prayers are with those who have been deeply affected by the massive flooding within the community the past few days. This flooding has been said to be unprecedented and historical and it just proves how powerful mother nature can be.

I would also like to thank our police officers, firemen and rescue crews and all first responders in the community for their tireless efforts to save lives. I invite all first responders to come in to Alodia's any time this week and enjoy a meal on us as a thank you for all of your hard work and dedication to our community.

Here at Alodia’s, we are truly thankful to be able to be up and running despite the massive flooding and we will be open tomorrow with normal business hours. I cannot thank everyone enough for the continued loyalty and patronage during this challenging time. I look forward to all the visits to come.
