If you are a Chicken Marsala fan, stop in at Alodia's for an excellent meal and great service! We also tried the gelato dessert and it was very good.

We highly recommend the duck dishes! The service is always fantastic and I’ve never gotten anything here that wasn’t delicious!

Alodia's is by far the best Italian restaurant around. We have tried others, even one of the really expensive ones, and ALWAYS compare them Alodia's. Alodia's food wins hands down everytime. Can't wait for the one in Lexington to open.

Great neighborhood Northern Italian restaurant which has folks coming from far and wide. The atmosphere is exciting and the bar is an excellent meeting place for friends. The menu has good standards like several pasta dishes, but also has an excellent steak, plus seafood specials.

It's not a set price . All menu items. Please see our website Alodias for full menu. (I had to spell out the website because trip advisor doesn't allow links for some reason)

Thanks for all of the advice. 12 of us ate there Friday night and we were able to get seated right at 6. The food was excellent and I am a good snob. We will definitely visit again next time we're in the area.

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.
