I stopped in for dinner after a long day and left feeling relaxed and happy. The roasted sweet potato salad with shaved fennel, figs, and ricotta was a great starter. The roasted whole brook trout was expertly de-boned, lightly stuffed with lemon slices and paper-thin...More

This is the only restaurant I have ever been that makes me crave carrots. The pastas are fantastic and the main course are original.

Rucola is a restaurant that serves Northern Italian fare in a candlelit, rustic setting. The prices are reasonable and they also serve breakfast, lunch and dinner seven days a week. Located at 190 Dean Street in Boerum Hill, Brooklyn this gem sits among the Brownstone...More

I have loved the food, and the restaurant is incredibly popular, but the noise level at night makes conversations IMPOSSIBLE. (somewhat better at lunch, and way better in the morning). So many hard surfaces so the noise of diners + music is not absorbed anywhere...More

Went as a party of 6 on July 4th. Food and service were excellent. We shared several appetizers and had steak, sea trout and pasta as our entrees. Nice wine. Our only complaint is the noise level. It’s a small place and it was full,...More

The scramble, with broccoli rabe and Grana Padano cheese, was excellent. Service was a bit perfunctory, perhaps because I'm not one of the locals the restaurant likes to think it caters to. But a good restaurant that makes good breakfast is a good thing.

We had a cross section of the lunch menu. Stick to the Caesar salad. Also skip desert. Drinks were good but a glass of rose-$15- ridiculous Bake pasta rigatoni was burnt, dry & flavorless. The portion was miniscule with chopped esparagus. But only chopped stems...More

I would agree with another comment on another site. This is not truly an Italian spot. Fresh ingredients ok. This is the second try and failed again. This time I tried the fried quail as an appetizer. Think Hooters chicken wings. For entree I had...More

A little off the beaten path (a couple blocks off Atlantic in a residential area), decided to try this place on the recommendation of one of my co-workers. The cuisine is modern Italian. The food was delicious and both my wife and I enjoyed the...More

We came and the place was totally empty, the only reason why was the fact, that they were only opening in about 10 minutes 😊 This place was fully overcrowded within 30 minutes, which made it bit noisy, but ok. Food was delicious and service...More
