The service at Cinghiale is second to none without being stuffy. Their menu is varied and representative of modern Italian cuisine. I opted for a Prix fixe menu with wine and was not disappointed. The salumi bar is impeccable, their entrees fresh and again, the service impeccable. The selection s of wine that came with my 6 course meal were... More

My friend, visiting from Houston, and I ate dinner at Cinghiale on a Saturday night in July. We took a table for two outside and got a view of the Chesapeake Bay as well as terrific people watching. We started with chilled Prosecco ($8 a glass!) and the bread basket and breath-taking olive oil (flavorful and definitely from Italy). The... More

Cinghiale is superb. The four course fixed price meal is like a trip to Italy in the Springtime. The cured meat appetizers are spectacular. The pastas are creative and delicious and the mains delicious. Dinner is not cheap, about $75/person with wine, but well worth it.

So glad we tried Cinghiale again. (We first ate here on a holiday shortly after it opened.) Pretty much everything had changed for the better. We like that there are 3 menu plans: a la carte and 2 different prezzi fissi arrangements ($29 casual 3-course dishes "from Grandmother's kitchen" and a more formal $62 4-course meal) with lots of the...

I have been dining at Cinghiale since it first made it's presence on the Baltimore restaurant scene. After working out a few kinks in the beginning, it had emerged as one of the cities best restaurants, and perhaps the best Italian restaurant in charm city despite the fact that Little Italy was just a few blocks away. Sadly it seems,... More

The quality of food and service is equal to the best Italian restaurants. Now that's hard to find -- and a great location in Baltimore's Inner Harbor. A wonderful, relaxed meal. Subtle, perfectly balanced flavors. All the staff we encountered were impeccably knowledgeable and kind -- no condescension, no faking it. An absolute pleasure. Standouts for us were the seasonal...

We have been here three times in the past couple of months and this is a great place to try some really nice Italian food and pair it with some great Italian wines. Not knowing Italian wines, I allowed the restaurant to do the pairings. The food - I have had the prosciutto, the grilled calamari and the hanger steak... More

I'm honestly shocked by the reviews. Maybe I've just had particularly good luck here, but I've eaten here at least six times and every time has been a memorably delicious meal. The service has always been outstanding. In fact, my husband and I love it so much that we held our wedding rehearsal dinner here. Not only was that meal... More

I've given this place three tries, I have to say that I'm officially done. The third time, the subject of this review was with a large group. The service was so disorganized, despite taking a long period of time to actually collect orders, in the end all of the plates were delivered to the wrong people, and it seemed no... More

On two separate occasions, my guests and I found the food bland and overpriced. I will say that the service and the wine list are wonderful -- perhaps a better location for happy hour than for a meal? I gave a poor review after my first visit and was invited back -- still disappointed. I will try elsewhere when I... More
