Italian
In Italian, the word, Secondo means “the second part of a duet.” When we opened Panico’s Bistro, we knew we wanted to eventually add some harmony to our original melody and so, Secondo is the continuation of our long-standing tradition to serve classic Italian cuisine in concert with Mediterranean influences right here in Cape May County.

Nested beautifully on the bay, enjoy dinner and hand-handcrafted cocktails; inside in our sophisticated dining room or outside on our covered patio next to the harbor and water.

Reservations highly recommended, walk-ins are accepted based on availablity.
Reservations guarantee seating, not a specific table. We will do our best to accommodate requests for seating preferences and/or outside dining, but they cannot be guaranteed based on limited outdoor seating. Two bars are available to enjoy cocktails and wine should you arrive early for your reservation.

Excellent meal along with excellent service. Salad special with warm apples, dates and almonds was delicious. Greek honey and fig pitas also awesome. Eggplant and scallop dishes superb. Ron, our server was friendly and efficient, just a pleasure

This was our first time at Secondo and will definitely be back. On the plus side, the foot was excellent! The downside was the wait (despite our 8:30 reservation) was at least 30 minutes. It was obvious they are understaffed (the norm these days) so our waitress was quick and robotic, but got the job done. It was a very nice night.

Our server Sarah was super nice and very attentive. We had a reservation and were seated promptly this time. Bread was good. Calamari needs a sauce with it. The steak was asked for medium rare, however it was almost raw. The pasta sauce was good, however it definitely isn’t fresh homemade pasta. Overall it was ok. We gave them a second chance but definitely not giving them a trigundo one!

Had to wait for my table which I had a reservation. Went to the bar stood there and the bartenders never came to me to give me a drink.
Food I ordered was past in in a cream sauce with scallops. Very dry and no flavor. This place seems overrated for sure.

THis is my favoriate restaurant in the lower area of Cape May county.
Menu is well thought out and always many choices, makes it a tough decision.
If they have the Pork Chop with Cavatelli order it best meal i have ever had.
Great staff, great and cozy bar

Sat in the enclosed porch in early January, was a little cold at the start (as they had just opened for dinner). I think these Jersey shore restaurants that only open on the weekends in the winter leave their heat off all week.

Had a 6:15 reservation got there at 6:05. Made us wait in their hallway until 6:15 and walked us to a table that was empty the entire time we were there. Place was half empty. No masks for servers. Big portion but the Sunday dinner cause had a very heavy nutmeg taste.

New Years Eve Prix Fixe seated at 9:30pm exactly on time for our reservation. Excellent food of high quality with substantial portions. Many items sold out but I’m giving them a pass since we were last seating available. Service could have been better and server didn’t know that Prosecco toast was included with meal.

NEVER GOING BACK! Deceived. Changed to prefix menu and didn't tell anyone the price. We called and thought it was regular menu. Walked in and had prefix on table with no price listed. Turned out to be $100/person. Early seating and they were out of soup for first course. Ordered snapper and they show up with Bronzino. We told them it was wrong and they said...oh, we are out of snapper and this was last fish. Really?? Horrible way to conduct business. Our table also had way over cooked scallops and store bought dessert. What a disappointment. Stay away as there are much better places all around Cape May

I understand $100 fix pricing for New Years Eve but it just wasn’t worth the money. The menu didn’t properly describe the food and the server was I’ll informed. They couldn’t even throw in a coffee let alone a free glass of cheap champagne. I won’t go back.

Our 1st time at Secondo. They were short four people, running to keep everyone happy, on our 49th anniversary. Well, above all they were going to make it special. We Loved it from music to desert. I will go back again soon.

The Christmas Eve fixed price menu had plenty of variety and everything was delicious. There was so much food that we both took leftovers from each of the four courses. The bacon wrapped goat cheese and date appetizer was the right combination of sweet and salty. My husband loved the sausage and mozzarella app. The Smoked Salmon Tortellini salad had the right amount of smoked salmon to complement the cheese tortellini. My husband's filet and salmon were done exactly as requested and the Veal Pecorino was so good, I was glad to have enough to bring home for 2 more meals. Coconut Snowball and Gingerbread cakes were perfect endings.

I was extremely impressed. Wonderful variety to choose from on the menu. My son was with me and he is a vegetarian (does eat fish) and had no problem finding something he liked on the menu. It was a refreshing change from the "usual" restaurants I go to and will be back.
