Fabulous food. Great service people even though they were busy and the service was slow. We did not mind however as we sat out on the patio on a lovely summer night sipping our wines. Hands down, the best place to eat in Dorset. I...More

We like the weekend brunches very much -- lots of choices. We also go here for dinner frequently during the summer. Italian menu is varied and the food is very good. Service is excellent.

Went with friends to try out the breakfast menu, having had dinner here before. Service was a bit slow, and the food was unremarkable. Too many other options in the area to come back.

Our group of 5 ate dinner here after having it recommended by a local. A great surprise. We all ordered different dishes from a wide variety of choices. I ordered asparagus lasagna. It was wonderful. Arrived very hot and perfectly seasoned. Everyone loved their choices.

Great breakfast menu mostly between $5 and $7. Wide choices and cute interior. The place is part of the Dorset General Store complex. Across the street are several cute shops forming a nice strip of touristy retail during the summer months. Recommended but we don't...More

In the fabulous town of Dorset, Minnesota located near Park Rapids, known as the Restaurant Capital of the World. La Pasta serves breakfast, lunch and dinner from May through September. Specializing in Italian cuisine for the evening menu. The food is excellent and the service is very good. The decor is attractive, with many artifacts and local collectibles on the walls.
