Cinghiale offers two different atmospheres for you to enjoy our fine dining establishment.
The Osteria at Cinghiale has the feel of an elegant tavern with white table-cloths and mahogany and leather banquettes. It features a large farm table for a special family-style dining experience.
The Enoteca at Cinghiale celebrates the modern Italian table. It is designed to be a playful section of the restaurant, as well as a gathering place. The space has a lively urban bustle that features rich woods, wrought iron chandeliers and a handcrafted marble tile floor. Adjacent to the main bar is a Salumeria that features traditional meats, cheeses and antipasti.
The menu is complimented by an over 500 label wine list that features Northern and Central Italian wines. World of Fine Wine magazine recognized Cinghiale for having one of the best wine lists in the world for 2016. Outdoor seating is available, weather permitting.

From the parking valet to the hostess to the wait staff, service was impeccable. Menu had a wide variety of interesting food items and preparations. I appreciated having the option of ordering smaller portions of the pasta dishes. Everyone in our party was very pleased with our dinner selections. The portions were adequate and the food was outstanding.

We have been to Cinghiale on many occasions but it was our 25th anniversary and we chose there to go. The food quality, style and service is over the top and the wine list is also worth the trip. We will be back.

Prior to going to the theater, we had an early seating and got a table in between the two primary seating areas that was outstanding. Nearly a private seating and able to watch the sous chef prepare plates at a central station. Great wine list. We had the La Cucina Della Nonna and really enjoyed the selections. a good value and outstanding food.

Cinghiale has been our go to for special occasion dining. Our last two visits were disappointing. The Burrata was tasteless, I had to ask for salt to give it flavor. The bread was excellent. The Squid Ink Pasta tasted fishy and had no flavor. The scallops were served room temperatures. The Affogato which is typically amazing seemed to be missing some of its ingredients and was a let down. This place needs attention from the head team.

We very much enjoyed our dinners in the Enoteca. 2 of the 4 of us had the $29 Mamma prix fixe dinner. Both first courses (salad and the fritto misto) were large and tasty. I had the scallops for a main course which were delicious tho a bit too salty for my taste. Everything came out together and was hot.
One suggestion for the restaurant (and I have felt this before) is to have cushions on the benches because they are very hard.

My sister and I recently graduated from Loyola and have moved away from Baltimore. While we were here, this was one of MY FAVORITE spots to eat. She is active duty military and is getting ready to deploy. She came here and had top service (always). They had nothing short of the best. 10/10 recommend.

I took my girlfriend here for her birthday. I noted in my reservation that it was her birthday and we were treated wonderfully. Greeted warmly and graciously by our hostess, we were sat in the formal dining room and seated immediately. Our waiter introduced himself and went over the menu, explaining the protocol for the price fixed menu. Rather than reviewing each dish, I will say that every server was outgoing, warm, and the meal was perfectly paced and delicious. Highly recommended for special events or a very nice night out.

What a disappointment! The food was so below par. The "homemade pasta" is not only a boxed product but cheap one at that--and served as a blob that made it inedible. The shrimp were small and farm raised. The arugula salad was almost without dressing and no cheese. The desserts were terrible and even the "gelato" was cheap conventional ice cream. What hype for such terrible food. The only saving graces are the ambiance and extensive, although pricey, wine list. I would strongly recommend eating at any other Italian restaurant. A real shame as the restaurant was hyped and well reviewed, I hope others learn from my mistake.

Our waiter was extremely professional. But he was not cordial. He gave me the impression that he did not approve of me as a customer. Perhaps he was having a bad day. I tried to talk to him in a friendly fashion to see if I could lighten his mood, but he avoided engaging and avoided eye contact when he passed. It was disturbing.

My wife enjoyed her meal immensely. I did not think mine was worthy of a restaurant of this caliber. Overall, it was a huge disappointment for me. I will not return.

Went for Baltimore restaurant week as a friend's get together and the food was amazing, so much flavor! My friends had the mixed greens salad and I had the burrata with grilled zucchini which we could have easily just kept eating that. One of us ordered the grilled bronzino, and in his words the fish and the skin "were divine." I had the mushroom ragu with pasta (best I've ever had), and my other friend also greatly enjoyed the chicken wrapped in Prosciutto. We got lucky it was 1/2 price for a bottle of wine and got one to split with the table. Servers and staff were professional, efficient and welcoming. We would go back and willingly pay the full menu prices, it is worth the value.

Cinghiale is one of our favorites, but there are times when it really misses. This was one of those times. My husband's duck was cold and my Branzino was also barely warm. I ate it anyway. Everything else was good. We will return and hope for a better experience next time.
