We love this little place in our hometown. There just isn't anything bad on this menu and of course the wine (and beer selection) is great. There are small plates on the menu that are out of this world and we generally start with a few of those and keep ordering until we are full or have to go. It's a great place to pop in for a start to an evening or an end to an evening as well. You can really make a visit anything you want in terms of length. If you are having trouble picking a wine the waiters and bartender can be very helpful in making your choice - just explain what you like and they will have some very good advice. Likewise - you can try a number of different wines by the glass since all of their wine is available this way. They have a number of very healthy options - lots for vegetarians or gluten free folks - but let me just say that the fried blue cheese olives are absolutely to die for. I know they sound heavy - but they aren't. I literally find myself suggesting stopping by Secco when we've agreed to meet friends elsewhere later. The ONLY reason I can't give it a 5 - and this is a bit unfair since it's understandable what they are doing - is that if you aren't eating dinner they ask you to sit at the bar or the community table - which is great and offers a fantastic view of the bustling street in Carytown. This can be awkward for folks and comes as a bit of a shock when you first hear it if there are a number of empty two-top tables. However - it's a small place and they are saving these seats for diners. I'm fine with this now that I'm used to it - I want this place to thrive and stay awhile - so in order to do that they need folks eating dinner to be able to be seated. It's also a bit loud for me - but I feel a bit bah-humbug saying that since people having a great time is a noise we should all embrace. If you like wine and good food - please do yourself a favor and try this great place. It's well worth it.
