Travel and Leisure Magazine is still poring through data collected for its annual "America's Best Cities" survey, the latest of which was released last fall. This month, the magazine's web site rounds up the top pizza towns in the country based on reader votes. Let's just say the North End has some work to do.

Boston finished ninth out of the Top 20 cities that Travel and Leisure listed. Chicago and New York finished No. 1 and 2, respectively, followed by Providence, R.I. at No. 3, no doubt buoyed thanks to fine destinations such as Caserta Pizzeria and Al Forno.

Other cities that finished in front of Boston were Philadelphia, Savannah, Georgia, Portland, Ore., and - believe it or not - Salt Lake City. As if that weren't enough of a kick, the magazine notes that Boston's barbecue also comes in dead-last. Ouch.

Portland, Maine also finished in the running, at No. 17.
