Welcome to Alodia’s
With locations in Lexington and Irmo, Alodia’s Cucina Italiana is a restaurant born from the love of an Italian family. Proprietor Adam Huneau’s first restaurant has been wowing taste buds in Irmo with his authentic Italian Cuisine comprised of recipes that have been pulled from the pages of his family’s cookbook. His latest location in Lexington is guaranteed to continue the tradition of excellence Alodia’s is known for.
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 restaurants 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.

Meet Our Staff
Adam & Betsy Huneau
Chief Operations Officer
General Manager, Lexington
Bar Manager – Lexington
We have aa new addition to the Alodia’s management team, as well as the departure of one. First, I would like to introduce Shawn Rioux, who will be taking over the position of Lexington’s General Manager. It’s hard letting go of this position, as I loved seeing everyone on their trips to the Lexington store, but I have no doubt that Shawn won’t miss a beat taking over the position. Don’t worry! I will still be in from time to time to visit with everyone, and we will continue to always be improving the experience everyone receives when you step in the door at Alodia’s!
As we all know, life takes us in different directions and sometimes you find yourself having to call a new place home. Chef Michael Perez has decided to find his calling and be with loved ones in Charleston. it wasn’t an easy decision and it was hard to see him go, but sometimes life has bigger plans. We will still be unveiling the new menu early March, which Chef Perez played a big role in constructing and he hopes everyone loves the new dishes!
’til next time,
Please join us in welcoming Lexington General Manager, Shawn Rioux, to the Alodia’s Family! Shawn joined us in November, after 12 years of owning and operating his own full-service restaurant on Lake Wateree.
A native of North Attleboro, MA, Shawn comes to us with a degree in business from the University of Central Florida / University of South Carolina. Prior to jumping into the restaurant game, he worked in the healthcare sector for 25 years, as a Chief Information Officer at both Wuesthoff Health System in Rockledge, Florida and Tuomey Regional Medical Center in Sumter, South Carolina. Shawn has also owned and operated several companies in a wide array of industries.
We are thrilled that Shawn has decided to join the family and call Alodia’s home. Be sure to give him a special hello next time you are in Lexington!
