“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


Greetings, Everyone!!
We hope that everyone had a good start to their New Year and have been sticking to your resolutions. We all know how hard these are to stick to, whether it’s getting in shape, eating better, or being more financially responsible.

Coming up in February, we have some big changes happening within the company. To better serve our guests and to help us on our Baldrige Award journey, there will be a shift in management of the Lexington store. As I move into my new position as Chief Operations Officer, my current assistant manager, Yarelie, will be moving into the General Manager position. Her right hand man will be Kashaad, moving into the assistant manager position. I want to thank everyone I have had the pleasure of serving and meeting over the past 8 years of being with the company. We would not be where we are right now without all of you! Don’t worry, I will not be leaving Alodia’s – but instead will be ensuring our patrons continue to get that signature experience that they have come to know, and improve on it from behind the scenes.

Our restaurant week in January was a huge success! Thank you to all who came out during January to cash in on the sweet deal. Don’t forget Valentin’s Day is coming up on February 14th and we will be continuing to uphold our “first-come, first-served” seating policy. Stop in for a great date night, lunch, or dinner. We will be serving our full menu and feature some nightly specials.

Delicious!

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
