It's hard to write about Cinghiale without repeating myself. My wife and I have been goingseveral times a year since it opened, and it is consistently exceeding our best memories -- what more need I say. Maybe it's just that the food matches our palate, but it's more than that. There aren't many places where you feel that every bit is an "oh yeah!" experience -- this is what food should be. and that's "just" the Enoteca, BTW. In the dining room you'll add a little elegance and leisure, but in my experiencethe food is equally good either place.

Cinghiale never fails to hit the bull's eye. I know of no place where you can get foie gras, sweetbreads, and Terre Nere Prephyloxera, and have them all be perfect. If you have not been, you really need to go.

Terrific attention to detail and hospitality from everyone at this very fine Italian restaurant
The hostess went above and beyond to ensure that we received the table that we wanted (for an important “meet the in law” dinner). She graciously went so far as to show me a few table options even though the restaurant was busy.
The bar was great and prepared a perfect Negroni Sbagliato
Our waiter’s food were perfect for our group. The food was expertly prepared and the wine list was comprehensive and reasonably priced
I can’t say enough positive things about this restaurant

As soon as we entered we were greeted by Racquel(?) an extremely pleasant and friendly hostess. She explained that there were actually two dining areas “ enoteca” a more casual and bar side and the “ Osteria” which was a fancier dining room. They have the same menus but different vibes. We really like thatshe took the time to explain the the lay of the land to us. We chose the quieter Osteria side
Our waiter Andrew was professional and so helpful and good natured but not overbearing
The menu is quite complete with all the standards and lots of other exciting dishes
The wine list had quite a selection of reasonable priced wines
We had just come from a movie and gorged on popcorn so didn’t want a large meal. Half portions of pasta and risotto are available
The word half portion is a misnomer as the portions are large
We spilt a salad and the grilled calamari. We had half portions of tortilini and risotto.
Everything was tasty flavorful and was presented beautifully
There was not a misstep throughout the meal
I will definitely be returning soon

The food was bold but thoughtful. Radicchio salad was too much for me but the angel hair with beef ragu was melt in your mouth delicious. The duck was perfectly cooked at medium and the sauce was exactly what was needed. Dessert was panna cotta and gelato, not too heavy after a large meal but just what the taste buds needed to wrap up.

Cinghiale is a very special place with a Bistro feel, action, people, ambiance and to top it

You can tell they take their business very seriously and strive to give the diner and exceptional

We attended for my son's 25th birthday. From the moment I arrived, the staff was friendly, attentive, and quite helpful. The food was excellent--even the arugula salad--was delicious (my son couldn't stop talking about it). I enjoyed the risotto, as it wasn't gummy or overcooked. Even the leftovers were delicious. I accompanied the risotto with lamb. It was so tasty!

Before my son arrived, they took the candles and appeared after the meal with a delicious slice of cake, lit with candles and ice cream.

Thank you so much for a memorable evening!

A good stand by with interesting offerings in a an engaging atmosphere. Usually predictable with satisfying results, but the last experience was good, not great. The Halibut entry was somewhat tasteless in spite of interesting ingredients that promised more flavor than it delivered. Soup was outstanding but the salad could have come out of a bag. A bit disappointing. The service is dependable and the staff is engaging and aims to please.

We would describe the service as inattentive and it didn’t appear to be a busy Saturday night. I out of 4 of us enjoyed our dishes. The others were mediocre at best. We were really looking forward to this dinner and were sadly disappointed.

Cinghale is one of the easier and most enjoyable restaurants in Baltimore. The free valet parking removes all the complications of Baltimore parking. The space if very attractive with the alternative of a relaxed or more formal dining room. The wine selection is superb and has a range of price options to satisfy different customers. The bread is best in Baltimore. The cheese and meat starters to share are delicious and create a sense of family at the table. At our table, we had 3 pastas and a fish dish. All were delicious. The three course prix fix for $29 is one of the best deals in town.

We go often and recommend you do as well.

I appreciated having the option of ordering smaller portions of the pasta dishes. Everyone in our party was very pleased with our dinner selections.

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.
