My wife and I live in Annapolis and often eat out. We usually tend to head toward DC. On the recommendation of some friends we decided to try Cinghiale. We often share our courses and we started with the assorted meats and the green summer salad followed by the agnolotti and then the duck. We chose to have cheese rather... More

Lived in Baltimore for 3 years and this was by far my favorite restaurant. Such a great selection of food choices and wines. Never had a bad meal at Cinghiale. Also loved the atmosphere. Still go back here with my husband for special occasions because the food is that good. You will not be disappointed!

We wanted to enjoy a good Italian meal while sitting outside in Baltimore, and we found it all at Cinghiale. We had a table outside on a beautiful evening in the Inner Harbor East overlooking a marina. The service was fabulous and well paced. The food was very good...especially the Casunsei (a sausage filled pasta parmigiana, butter, and sage). We... More

I eat here twice during Baltimore restaurant week. First time i had the aruglia salad and lasagne from the set menu both of which were good, but the dessert, billed as a tiramisu, was more like a flan, VERY long wine list with some expensive wines...but also some good value choices around $30. Both times I found the service was... More

Cinghiale has authentic Italian cuisine and a substantial wine list. In the Enoteca portion, wines are half priced on Tuesdays, however fully priced in the Restaurant portion. Tagliatelle with cinghiale Bolognese was as authentic as if it were Firenze, which is where our waiter was from. The waiter helped by explaining a couple of items that were beyond my restaurant...

This is one of my wife's favorite restaurants in Baltimore. This trip we took two elderly friends, who were not that familiar with true Italian dishes. The staff did a great job dealing with their needs. The food was wonderful as always. They have a great wine list of regional Italian choices that are unique, and the staff has always... More

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...
