Looking for a good Spaghetti Vongole

My criteria are simple, yet seemingly hard to meet at the places I've tried.

- There is such a thing as too much garlic, but in my sauce for this dish, that is a lot of garlic. Don't be shy.
- The sauce, while olive oil-based, should also adhere to the pasta in a large enough quantity that I can taste it while eating and am not forced to use a spoon to eat it like soup.
- Spending $40 on a plate of pasta, while perhaps worth it in some circumstances, is not worth it for me for this dish.

I would like the white version of the sauce, not the red version. I know Toronto has a dearth of decent Italian, so I am asking you guys for suggestions because I don't want to hunt around forever. :)
