Alodia's Cucina Italiana, 101 West Main Street: Early July 2023   4 comments

Posted at 11:36 pm in closing



I did a closing on the Lake Murray location of Alodia's back in June of 2021 when they were closed due to staffing issues. They re-opened after that, and I made it a point to go by for a meal, and thought it was fine.

Reently commenter Robin pointed out that the Main Street Lexington location was closed temporarily due to financial issues.

You can read more about that from The State, WLTX & The Post & Courier.

I couldn't park when I drove past last weekend, but there was a sign on the door and it did appear to be closed then. However, judging from the recentness of several of the Google reviews I see, it appears they may have already reopened. Can anyone say for sure?

(Hat tip to commenter Robin)

UPDATE 20 June 2024 -- There is definitely much more to this story than is suggested in the initial post above, as the saga has played out in the local media. Be sure to check the comments below. Anyway, at this point the place has closed again, for good, and all the branding is gone:

  2. I saw a note on their page that they are obligated by their lease to run the restaurant. Some kind of legal clause. To maintain compliance, they closed Irmo and moved staff to Lexington.
    Sounds like they're tryign to keep open, and resolve issues.. but they really need a PR person to handle it. It really just looks like bad management and ownership at this point, which only will serve to damage the reputation.
    Not sure the current state, maybe they flip flop staff for a while to keep things running

  4. This dude took over half a million dollars in PPP loans that he didn't pay back PLUS a $15k grant from the town of Irmo (after a campaign donation to one of the councilmen of course) and had the nerve to call his employees "evil government bottom feeders." Also proud to have stormed the capital on J6 and is a Covid denier.

    So sad to see him fail.
