Rancho Pinot is the quintessential local restaurant that has been serving simple, delicious food prepared with dedication and care in Scottsdale, Arizona, for the last 23 years. With much support and dedication, Chef Chrysa Robertson opened Rancho Pinto in 1993. Chef Robertson has always loved food since she was a child, and she decided to bring this lifelong passion for food to the public by opening her own restaurant.

Everything on the menu is made with care and dedication because that's how good food is made. Good food also does not need to be overcomplicated. In fact, overly complicated food sometimes lacks the richness and depth that makes eating an incredible experience, and Chef Robertson emphasizes this by using the freshest ingredients from local purveyors, creating a menu comprising many dishes that people will love. The menu at Ranch Pinot is ever-changing, offering customers the opportunity to enjoy the best of what the season has to offer.

Given the longevity of Rancho Pinot, it appears that much can be said for simple, good food. As a local restaurant that continues to serve good food, Rancho Pinot is a must-visit while in Scottsdale, Arizona.
