The service, the food, the ambiance, the wine...Just WOW! This is our third time to Alodia's in our short time having lived here in the wonderful state of South Carolina and each time is better than the last. My wife and I highly recommend this little corner of Irmo; you will not be disappointed!

Alodias is our favorite Italian restaurant in the columbia area. The lasagna and chicken marcello are just like we had while in florence, italy..... and this is the ultimate benchmark! And the staff is always the best. I highly recommend all give alodias a try!

I was for skeptical of an Italian restaurant in the strip mall. But this food is incredible. And if you want to eat there you better get there early. We went at 6 PM and there was already a line of people waiting to get a table. It's pretty pricey, but worth it.

Hubby and I ordered Sunday Brunch to go. We ordered the Eggs and Crab Strata and the Chicken Fried Chicken. The Hollandaise sauce was silky over the perfectly poached egg and crab meat with a side of hashbrowns. The chicken was lightly breaded, seasoned and fried crispy covering garlic mashed potatoes and slightly spicy andouille sawmill gravy. The fresh fried... More

As usual, Alodia's doesn't disappoint! Had the Tuscany chicken with a small salad. The salad was a very good size, definitely not small! The chicken was tasty and very tender. The new coffee machine allows the restaurant to make a variety of specialty coffee drinks, the caramel macchiato decaf was yummy. And the service is always great- friendly and very... More

Excellent atmosphere! The food was absolutely amazing! The bread was warm and delicious - fettuccine alfredo was the best I've ever had and my husband's chicken Parmesan was fabulous- we absolutely loved our dining experience! Our only complaint is that a salad did not come with our meal.

Description
In order to provide the best and most efficient service possible, we will no longer be accepting standard reservations or call-ahead seating. This new policy will help us ensure that we can accommodate all of our loyal guests in the most efficient way possible. We will continue to honor limited reservations as part of our VIP membership program. We look forward to seeing you at the restaurant and creating new memories with you and your family. Adam and Betsy Huneau, owners *********** 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. Fresh sauces and homemade 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. 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.. Brunch on Sundays: 11am-2pm. Dinner: 5pm-9:30pm.
