Brooklyn Mag says:

Lovingly put together by chef Vinny Campos, the menu sticks to Rucola’s locally sourced, vegetable-based Northern Italian ethos, but here with more of an eye to the coastal region of Liguria. Which means lots of delicately employed seafood, ranging from simpler presentations (elegantly marinated fluke, broccoli rabe in which anchovy works almost as a seasoning), alongside bigger undertakings, most notably a Rhode Island squid dish stuffed with scallops, mussels and fennel. They also have an eye to the day-to-day needs of 3rd Ward’s denizens with an in-house barista, as well as accessible breakfast and lunch options. “The building is filled with creative, driven entrepreneurs and students who want to learn and do productive things—what better community could you ask for,” Brizzi said. And it’s a community to which Fitzcarraldo will be a very welcome addition.
