The cities with the largest Italian populations are: New York, Philadelphia, Chicago, Boston, and Pittsburgh. Miami, Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Detroit all have a large Italian presence, while cities like Providence and Hartford have the highest percentages.
So, do these cities have the best Italian food, or does the best food not follow the demographic patterns?

New York for sure.

I know Chicago has Italian places on every damn corner, but I don't eat them as much cause they tend to be a little heavy compared to my usual salad and chicken feed.

NY and Chicago will probably reign supreme here. Didnt have Italian when I was in San Fran, but I see its doing well in the poll so it must be pretty good to compete with CHI and NYC. I did have Italian in Phoenix, San Diego and Atlanta.... not impressed. Not bad, but not great either.

Why even bother asking? Everyone knows it's NYC.

San Francisco has the worst pizza that's ever slivered down my throat. North Beach Pizza is given the award by Yahoo as best pizza in San Francisco? Give me a break. Great city, lousy pizza, obviously.
