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.

It has not changed much since the first visit, and that's a good thing.
The service is great as usual and the food is very good, despite the changed menu.
The inexpensive Tuscan red wine was better than expected.
First time on a Sunday evening, and it was a great.

I'm not sure if they were just having an off night or if the quality has started to slip. Cinghiale used to be one of my favorite restaurants, but I unfortunately left unimpressed. Everything was still delicious, it just wasn't quite like it used to be. Also we were there celebrating and our server very kindly brought out two complimentary desserts. However, they never asked us what we would have liked. I know this is sort of an odd complaint, and I don't mean to sound ungrateful, but the desserts they brought out were both coffee-centric, which is something my friend and I would have never ordered. So as a result we reluctantly picked at them out of guilt. Again I truly appreciate the gesture, just not so much the execution.

You know, I have always enjoyed Chingale, however this time was not the best. The decibel level was extreme and I had such a terrible plate of pasta I had to send it back. Many items on the menu seemed to be rather drab and uninspired.
All previous times have been stellar, so I'm not sure what happened, but it was disappointing.

Cinghiale is a good place to go for a special dinner or a night out with friends. The wine list is excellent and the food options are all very good. The decor is attractive and the ambiance comfortable, with just enough "buzz."

Still remembering the delicious dinner we had days ago. Food preparation was a whole different level of perfection; creative and elegant, but not weird. Waitstaff is very attentive. The menu has variety to please every palate and appetite size. Free valet parking made it easy to arrive without hassle. looking forward to returning.

I was not impressed by their food and service especially the unfriendly host. They also marked me no show on Opentable for whatever reason. Besides their funny service, food was way overpriced and underwhelming. It was $35 for 3 tiny pieces of pork that were extremely tough and tasted/smelled just like pig. I think it takes multiple wrongs to make a really bad dining experience and somehow they did nothing right.

My husband and I LOVE the shrimp and spaghetti dish and the porcini mushroom tagliatelle. We enjoyed the cheese platter. We found a great chardonnay that was just what we like and will come back for it on Tuesday's half price bottle of wine night. We always feel so welcome and as locals we appreciate the staff going out of their way to come over and say hello.

We had an amazing Valentine’s Day dinner! The food was outstanding. We decided to go with the wine pairings for our meal, which all of them were spot on delicious when paired with the course! The service was professional with the appropriate amount of engagement! We loved it and look forward to returning as a “GO TO” restaurant of choice in Baltimore!

My wife and I went for our first meal here. We were made to feel welcome. Friendly and attentive staff all around. Her experience and mine were quite different as far as the food goes. We both did the fixed four course dinner option. We both had different food for each course. Her meals were fantastic! Each and every one was fresh, full of flavor and savory. Mine were all disappointing. Calamari was chewy, pasta was too al dente and the veal was tough and chewy. All had great flavors but the full dish didn't deliver. The service was great, our experience with the sommelier was wonderful and the wine was unique and just great!

We loved everything about our dinner at Cinghiale! The restaurant is beautiful and cozy, the food was amazingly delicious, and the service was fantastic. We did the 4 course selection with the wine pairings & we’d highly recommend anyone visiting for the first time to do the same. We tried a lot of things we might not have tried had we ordered just a main dish and glass of wine.

One note, if you’re visiting for dinner and have a bit of a hard time seeing in low light, please bring reading glasses or maybe a descrete lighted magnifier. The number of people using their cell lights to read the menu was more than it should’ve been; people should have more tact in a nice restaurant.

We had a party of 10 for a work meeting on a cold weeknight. Everything was outstanding from the moment we stepped inside the restaurant. Our server, Valencia, was in tune to what we needed and was very knowledgeable of the food menu items and wines. I could not have asked for a better experience and can’t wait to go back.

An Argentinian friend was visiting from DC and I wanted to take her out for a memorable meal. We all know DC is home to so many wonderful dining experiences. Cinghiale did not disappoint. We started with a drink at the bar and she enjoyed the Cinghiale cocktail. We enjoyed a delicious meal, our server was attentive without being annoying and my friend said enthusiastically, “I want to come back here!”
