“good food”
Reviewed May 10, 2013

I have never had a bad meal at this restaurant, and since I am a local, I can say that we have been there several times a year since they opened, and consistency is the key. They offer gluten-free items for those of you who need that special dietary consideration. Downstairs, the pizza is pricey, but good.

“As advertised”
Reviewed May 4, 2013

Everything from the pizza to the service was excellent! We ate downstairs where there is a limited menu that is mostly pizza... but that is exactly what we wanted.... and it was happy hour too.

“great service at a wonderful restaurant”
Reviewed May 2, 2013

Not only does Lotsa Pasta have the best views of any restaurant in Cortez (Mesa Verde cliffs and Hawkins Preserve open space at sunset just stunning, from inside SE room or outside deck), for the price you can't get a better Italian meal anywhere (check out senior menu and they even meet special dietary needs). Service is wonderful, like Marcie last evening (and often in the past)...she is always friendly, big smile, great professional service. Thank you Marcie! And owner Cliff!

“Don't Miss This Place....!”
Reviewed May 1, 2013

Excellent Italian food in a unique building with outstanding valley views. We went here because of the Tripadvisor reviews. Those reviews were well-justified. Food was excellent, service excellent, and price quite reasonable. Had a chance to meet one of the owners (the wife) who was most gracious and charming. We'll be back the next time we're in Cortez, that's for certain.
