No. 9 Nashville
Music City is home to the friendliest people in America, according to the survey, as well as an increasingly foodie-friendly scene that lifted its pizza ranking from last year’s No. 17. Just off Music Row you’ll find DeSano Pizza Bakery, which has Verace Pizza Napoletana status, while also tipping its hat to hearty southern appetites: the Lasagna Pizza features meatball, ricotta, and buffalo mozzarella. Five Points Pizza in East Nashville, meanwhile, takes its New York allegiance seriously, alongside a menu of local microbrews.
