Tales from my travels: After a short afternoon walking around Mesa Verde National Park and its Cedar House pueblo, we decided to go for some Italian. This restaurant is actually two in one. Lotsa Pasta is on the top floor and Thatza Pizza is on the bottom floor. We ate at Lotsa Pasta where they serve the typical Italian fare that includes vegetarian and gluten free options. Thatza Pizza has a all-you-can-eat pizza buffet. Everything is homemade and they boast several awards. They also have a beautiful view from the balcony and we were able to watch the sun set. I had the mushroom ravioli which were really good but I was unable to try any of their desserts.
