Zucca downtown

Had a very satisfying meal at Zucca on Saturday evening. Good house-cured tuna salad, excellent tortelloni de zucca, good but oily linguine alla vongole. Seared scallops with sundried tomatoes, celery, and artichokes were very delicous. The coarse-grain polenta that came with the entree was outstanding. They granted us half-orders of the pasta allowing the two of us to approximate a more authentic Italian meal... Carafe of house chianti fit the bill nicely after a few glasses of proseco before we went to the restaurant.

Anyone else have good (or otherwise) experiences there? Not sure I would go back immediately, in favor of trying other restaurants, but I would not hesitate to reccomend it.
