I didn't like this place. Let me tell you why. We were visiting Richmond on a multiple day drive back from Florida. We decided to go to the restaurant first before checking in to the hotel. We were about 20 minutes early for our reservation....More

Let me start by saying this place isn't for everyone. You need to love wine, a very casual atmosphere, small, interesting plates, not a major meal. If all that appeals, then you will love it too. It is a small space in Carytown, but they...More

We stopped at the Secco for wine and relaxation. It was comfortable and had a welcoming atmosphere. The wine selections were international and provided a great variety. The bartender was very knowledgeable, engaging and enjoyed good wines and sharing her knowledge. We only had appetizers...More
