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
Hope everyone has been enjoying this cooler patio weather! We have a lot of exciting changes coming up at Alodia’s. This month we will introduce our new dinner menus. On this menu, we have switched up some things and given our chefs TWO special spots to use their creativity. We will be featuring a rotating, made-from-scratch soup and a Chef’s seafood special. The seafood special will range from a variety of different proteins from the sea that are guaranteed to keep your taste buds intrigued. We will feature local seafood caught here, off the coast of South Carolina, along with seafood from around the world. Along with all this exciting news, we do have some unfortunate news for one of our dishes. The beloved Blackened Mahi has been removed from the menu for the time being. We always make sure we partner with sustainable seafood vendors to ensure we continue to utilize what mother earth has given us, well into the future. Unfortunately, mahi mahi has been on an international decline over the past year and we must give them the chance to increase their population. We are sad to see it go, but it is for the better for this fish species.
October is, as some of you may know, international Breast Cancer Awareness Month. All over the United States and world, charities come together to raise money for the awareness of breast cancer and research to fight it. During the month of October, when you order a dessert here at Alodia’s, it will be served with pink whipped cream! This special whipped cream is made by a local dessert company and for every case they sell, they will donate the proceeds to benefit the research of breast cancer. So, make sure when you come in, you save room for dessert!
Hope to see you soon–
