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.
Amazing deal for the four course menu! The food was amazing
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.
This place was wonderful. The service was a little drawn out but the server was very nice. The portions were very well done and the food presentation was beautiful.
Celebrated our 1 year anniversary, our waiter Juan was great: Attentive but not intrusive. We were given a complimentary champagne toast and the 4 course tasting menu was a great option.
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.
A spectacular wine list with some wonderful food.
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
We have been to Cinghiale a few times previously. We have always had a great dinning experience. The service is excellent. The food was wonderful with many menu options to choose from. If you go you will not be disappointed.
The service was outstanding and the pasta and entree surpassed expectations!
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
Service was good but food was quite bland.
Overall I left disappointed.
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.
A superb restaurant with excellent food and service in a beautiful setting.
Great dinner with friends. The atmosphere was fun and friendly, the food was delicious. I had the veal and it was wonderful. The dessert crostada was delicious.
Cinghiale is a very special place with a Bistro feel, action, people, ambiance and to top it
all off excellent food and many, many choices.
You can tell they take their business very seriously and strive to give the diner and exceptional
experience with thoughtful touches, a varied wine menu and great silent service.
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!
Excellent choices in Nona’s menu! Wonderful dinner!
The service was outstanding the only issue was our Halibut as well as our spinach clams and mussel dish was over salted .The rest of our meal was good
It’s a great looking restaurant with great service
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.
Dinner Celebration for my daughter’s 21st Birthday was fabulous from beginning to end. Exceptional service, delicious food and spectacular wine list! This was our second visit to Cinghiale and was even more impressive than our first! A favorite of ours now when in Baltimore!
Cinghiale was fantastic as always. The food is amazing and the service never disappoints.
Excellent food. Our server was helpful and fun. She made the meal even more enjoyable. I'll be back!
Cinghiale can be noisy, but the service and food are very good. The wine list is spectacular.
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.
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.
Cinghiale is excellent and above all authentic. The tasting menu with or without the wine pairing is great value and outstanding food. We have been several times and have never been disappointed with the food, the service or the ambiance
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.
Jimmy was our server twice and she knows her stuff!!!! From the complexities of the wine and supreme knowledge of the menu, she had it all at her fingertips. If I didn’t live in San Diego I would be there weekly. Bravo!
Very good food and nice presentation. TOP service. Warmly recommended. We were a party of 12 and service was very fast and accurate,
Cinghiale does it all- great menu, prepared expertly; outstanding, attentive service; excellent wine list with many interesting selections presented by a very knowledgeable wine steward. Innovative and exceptional Italian Food makes this our new 'go to' place in Baltimore. Well done!
Great service door to door. Very pleasant greetings, excellent reccomendations. The pastas really stood out. The tasting meal portions were slightly large for me.
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.
What a wonderful date night. Thank you! Every recommendation from our server was spot on (although I wonder if you could try any bad courses here...) everything was absolutely delicious!! Squid ink pasta w crab and the bronzino entrees were our favs.
Jimi was so attentive and sweet
Phenomenal service. Good food. My go to.
I love the soft lighting...intimate yet worldly. Service second to none. Food exquisite. Great experience!
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.
An absolutely exceptional dining experience! Kudos Chighiale for a really great job.
