“The food wasn't for us, but...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 April 2012

This is a very trendy, small and hip wine bar. We're not accustomed to dinning like this, that is why I only rated it average. All the cheeses and meats have little descriptions and suggestions on wine pairing. The spicy plum chutney is to die for, though. A good place to have a small plate and after dinner drinks. Very clean with friendly and attentive staff.

“Terrific place to spend all your money”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 March 2012

Had a fabulous time at Secco on a Friday night. It was packed, but the service at the bar was very helpful and fun. Amazing wines at very good prices, but it adds up quickly!

“Quality food and fun!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 March 2012

Richmond lacks many lunch places open on Saturday that aren't brunch and this is a star! I had the parsnip soup while my husband had the Italian egg drop soup. Both were wonderful . The parsnip had just the right richness with out being heavy and the broth in the Italian egg drop was wonderful. We split an egg salad curry sandwich with fried shallots. Yum! They split the sandwich on two plates for us with each getting some of the salad. So accommodating! We also each had a glass of Provence rose which went well.Don't be afraid to try the rosemary olive oil gelato. It is so good! We will be back often!

“Best Wine Bar in Richmond!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 February 2012

My husband & I live in the far West End, but make the trip into Carytown several times a month to Secco where we always enjoy something different and wonderful. Secco recently won an award for the best wine program in Richmond, and we agree! Congratulations! We look forward to enjoying more wonderful wine/food pairings!

“Great place for a girls night”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 February 2012

My friends and I visit Secco maybe once a month for dinner and wine. We love the fun, intimate atmosphere in Carytown and the small plates and food are great and inventive. Great selection of wines and knowledgeable waitstaff make this a wonderful place. Be prepared to spend about $70 per person for a good night.
