This is our special place for celebrations. We have our girlfriend birthday parties here and often do family Sunday brunch. There is not a bad item on the menu and I have had most of it. The lunch specials are also awesome.

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)
We will be in town next weekend and would like to celebrate my wife's birthday at your restaurant. There will be 11 of us. How early should I call ahead to get on a wait list to ensure we get a table?

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.

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.
