Cinghiale - Enoteca (Wine Bar)
We went to Cinghiale to celebrateWe went to Cinghiale to celebrate our daughter's engagement. Restaurant sent out complimentary glasses of sparkling wine which was a lovely touch. Food was excellent. Portions perfect. We had a great time.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMone problemEverything was great, BUT....when we first ordered I asked the waitress if we could have separate checks, and she reluctantly told us "yes"....however, she did not separate them and it is very frustrating when you have 5 people ordering drinks, sodas, etc!!!!!....I don't know why this is such a problem in Baltimore......I have been to many other states in the last few years and they gladly oblige, and usually ask outright if we would like to the have the checks separated.....this is very annoying5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMFirst time visitorsThe food was quite delicious and we tried a great variety - enjoying all of them. The ambiance was great, including the view. Nice plus to have complimentary valet. Service was attentive and mostly good, but sometimes things were a little off the mark. I ordered a black tea after dinner, and was served chamomile. We ordered the semolina donuts for dessert (after debating that over the cheesecake) - but we were initially served cheesecake. I ordered a 1/2 glass of wine, that never actually came to the table, so we just skipped it at that point.
I picked Cinghiale to take out of town visitors too (in from KY, I am from DC) as I saw it on the Baltimore Magazine Top 10 for 2012- and they really enjoyed the food. They were impressed.5/22/2013 12:00:00 AMBeyond ExcellentMeal was incredible. Wine list exceptional, Definitely returning!5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent Food and Wine SelectionWe have been to this restaurant many times. Excellent food and wine selection. Their main menu is for a $62 prix fixe that includes an app, small pasta plate, meat and dessert. You can also order anything ala carte, and get a larger portion of the pasta dishes. All of my choices this visit were very good, but if I were to knock anything, portion sizes are a little small. They also have a $29 prix fixe menu that includes an appetizer assortment, entree and dessert. I've gone this route a few times in the past and recommend the lasagna and sausage stuffed pasta. The wine has a similar range of options, from high price to $7 glasses. Because of this range of price options, we have gone here for both special dinners and everyday meals.5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent Italian find!My friends and I went here after the Preakness horse races looking to find a nice meal, with a great view. This place exceeded our expectations! The food was amazing - you'll have to try their recommended pairings of fine cheeses and wines. The prices were also very reasonable. Highly recommended for anyone wanting to enjoy a night out on the Baltimore Inner-Harbor!!5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMWith the exception of a fewWith the exception of a few service "hiccups", it was a very enjoyable evening of outdoor fine dining.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMFabulous as always. Our waitressFabulous as always. Our waitress needed more training as it was her second week. We were patient. I would prefer not being asked the same question over and over since there are do many wait staff all repeatly checking on the table. I also don't like plates cleared while a diner is still eating. These can be easily addressed by management.
The food is great.5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMHad a very pleasant experience.Everyone was pleasant and helpful. We left with a very positive feeling that we would be happy to return
and make it a restaurant destination . As soon as you walk in the interior is warm and welcoming.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMFourth visit for dinner. FoodFourth visit for dinner.

Our servers were very knowledgeable and helpful with our menu choices. We sampled some calamari as an appetizer, and both enjoyed terrific entrees. The portions were sizeable,delectable, and the crab ravioli in particular was reason enough to dine with Cinghiale!4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMI'm from Chicago so I've manyI'm from Chicago so I've many great restaurants as options to dine at. My boyfriend lives here, and this was recommended. We celebrated his birthday. Neither of us drink alcoholic beverages. Wished the seats had cushions4/23/2013 12:00:00 AMthis was one of my top 5 Bmorethis was one of my top 5 Bmore restaurants for several years. the last time we ate here we chalked up the not-quite-good food to a holiday menu. because of the ambiance & service & past experience, I decided to bring a foodie friend for a Monday night dinner. now I'm concerned. the bruschetta that came with the 3 course fixed menu had at least 2 toppings that had a tinge of canned taste (however the house made ricotta was superb). and then the second course--the pasta was so overlooked that it clumped (but the shrimp were cooked to perfection). the desert, as always. almost made me forget about the slightly above average food. what happened to my Cinghale?! (oh but I love the wine list & knowledgeable staff who help me try new things.)4/22/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful dinner at CinghialeMy wife and I loved Cinghiale. Great Italian food, wonderful service and exquisite drinks.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMAbsolutely delicious. I hadAbsolutely delicious. I had the price fixed "Cucina della gonna" and it was an excellent value. I look forward to coming back to Baltimore to dine here again.4/16/2013 12:00:00 AMAs always the food was excellent.As always the food was excellent. This is my favorite food and wine list in Baltimore. Although the men in my party thought some of the portions were too small, I thought it was perfect especially if you want to eat several courses. I am personally tired of the oversized portions found in most American restaurants.4/15/2013 12:00:00 AMHad a great beautiful timeHad a great beautiful time with my fiancé she really enjoyed the service that was provided and the wine. It made our night perfect and to put a smile on her face really brought me satisfaction. It was her bday weekend and it was the last thing that we did and she really appreciated everything that you all did for us. We will be back again, Thank you.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMThe most authentic ItalianThe most authentic Italian dishes I've had since our trip to Tuscany nearly two years ago. The wait staff was pleasant and very helpful. They pulled in the sommelier when needed -- particularly when I discovered four different types of Amaro on the dessert menu.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMTruly Extraordinary!Food is truly extraordinary. Unique, delicious dishes and beautifully prepared. Prices are high but menu is flexible and varied. We enjoyed a bottle of moderately priced wine ($52) but then decided to order by the glass. At our waiter's recommendation -- and without the wine list on the table -- three of us ordered a glass a wine that had been paired with the duck without asking the price. It was $26.00 a glass. We would have been better off ordering another bottle of wine, and it might have been helpful if the waiter had found a way to tell us that.... The only other downside would be how noisy the Enoteca is. Until the crowd dissipated, we had to shout to be heard across the table. I would choose the dining room next time.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMA hit everytimeEach time I go I enjoy myself more. Food is wonderful and service is excellent. Servers are knowledgeable and friendly.4/4/2013 12:00:00 AMnothing wrong with food ornothing wrong with food or ambiance or service. but the special Easter menu was not at all worth the cost. after a glass of wine each, coffees, two people = $145? and we were still hungry? c'mon. we live this place but we won't do a special menu again.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMLittle Italy's Brightest GemSuperb in every way! We selected the La Cucina della Nonna meal for only $29! Included wonderful bruschetta, choice of pasta & dessert. Augmented nicely with bresaola & insalata verdure and several cocktails! I'll be back.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMAnother great Wolf restaurant.Another great Wolf restaurant. Suberb service and Wonderfully informed wait staff.
