Good Italian on long island is a myth!

I have just spent two hours trying to find a single good Italian restaurant in Nassau County, and I've come to the conclusion that it just might not exist. I grew up on LI and have lived in Manhattan for the last 10 years. I must be spoled because everytime I try an LI Italian restaurant, it's garbage. Overcooked pasta, tangy tomato sauce with a scoop of sugar added, soggy eggplant, 8 inch think veal milanese... that about sums up my opinion and experience.

After speaking to everyone I know to try and find a good place for this weekend, I have made zero progress and I think I know why - because LI restaurants mostly stink. If anyone knows something that I don't, please opine.
