Iriana’s Pizza has been in downtown little rock for a long time. They moved a few years ago to a larger location but the food has stayed the same. They are not your typical pizza joint in that their pizza has a unique flavor to it. For uniqueness of taste I rank it up there with places like Damgoode Pie and Zaza’s.
My wife and I have been a few times over the past few months (on weekends only) and each time we order the Sweep the Floor Special($17.95). The Sweep the Floor special has 7 toppings on it (for the price of 4 they claim) and tastes wonderful. It’s not too heavy and the sausage is either homemade or they use a brand no one else does around town. The vegetables taste fresh and the pizza has a seasoning on it that goes very well with the ingredients. Their red sauce is spicy enough without being overbearing yet is not bland. I recommend the special for any occasion.
They also sell sandwiches, salads, and breadsticks. I have not tried the sandwiches or the salads but their Full Order of Breadsticks with Cheese ($4.29) are a good buy. You get nice soft bread with just the right amount of cheese on top.
I really don’t have much else to say except that Iriana’s is one of my favorite pizza places in Little Rock and I missed it greatly when I moved away for a few years. I’m glad to be back and to have access to Iriana’s again.
