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
Happy August Everyone!
We have a lot planned for the month of August. We have a new lunch menu coming out soon with some amazing new items! We are very excited to share them with you, so keep an eye out for that. It’s hard to believe school begins this month and football is right around the corner. The kids are getting so big. Michael starts Kindergarten; Andre and Kathleen will attend preschool together. It seems like yesterday we were celebrating the news of Betsy being pregnant with Michael. Betsy continues to amaze me every day. I am so lucky she said yes ten years ago. She is my rock and best friend. I do miss the days though when we worked side by side everyday. Some of you remember when she made the pasta in the dining room during lunch. We are blessed that she can stay home with the kids and they have had the best summer. We have been so blessed.
Thank you to all of you that have supported us all these years. It has allowed
us to open our second store in Lexington which is doing so well! We anticipated the Irmo store to drop off quite a bit due to this and amazingly it barely did! This community is amazing. Also, we are working on an entirely new project which will benefit both stores! I can’t wait to share that with you as it will make you all very happy! I hope you enjoy this last bit of summer and we look forward to seeing you soon! Thank you for allowing us to live out our dream.
