Italian accent // English

Here's a little question for you native English speakers. How do you perceive the accent of an Italian person speaking English? Not the stereotypical accent with kinda awful pronounciation somebody has (people saying de instead of the, or fings instead of things, and other horrors), I mean the accent a person with a good grasp of the correct English pronounciation should have. Does it sound bad, nice, difficult to understand? What are the main mistakes you have heard from Italian people? I want to perfect my pronounciation as much as I can and I need some help. Also, can you tell me where you are from? I'd be curious to see if there are any differences in perceiving our accent depending on which zone the native speakers come from. Thanks!
