Long Island Filter: I'm looking for the names of 3 food joints - An Italian restaurant just before the Northern State Pkwy on Willis Avenue back in the 80's, The name of the bagel place that was just next door on Willis Ave, and the bakery in the strip mall at the corner of Hillside Ave and Herricks Rd.

The Italian joint had great pizza - google earth tells me this spot may have been demo'd. La Riviera? Nah. That's not it! What was it??
The bagel place made the BEST cinnamon raisin bagels I've ever had.
The bakery (not Polito's, this was a nearby competitor) made these dense little round cakes with raisins and a egg yolk wash - but I could swear there was no yeast in the recipe. These little cakes were MAGIC.
I would appreciate any info on any of these businesses. My taste buds want to know if I can get these delicacies elsewhere. I have this idea that good recipes never die, they just get passed on.
