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.

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
