Cinghiale is one of many great restaurants run by local chef and restauranteur Cindy Wolf. In Baltimore's Harbor East neighbor, a charming few blocks of streets near the water and built around anchor hotels (and a Whole Foods), the restaurant has an Italian Enoteca/Osteria feel, with dark wood tables and marble accents. It doesn't feel stuffy so much as open,... More

Okay, I have to admit. I miss Cingiale. The space is lovely, the service is fantastic and their food continues to delight. My husband and I used to eat at the bar every Friday night after a movie, and I miss it! Was back in Baltimore for two nights and ate there one night with a party of twelve. The... More

We shared the whole dinner, We had the grilled calamari first which was good if you could find it on the plate. next we shared the shrimp pasta,also a small... More

Three of us had delicious pasta dinners in the dining room side of the restaurant. The Prix Fix menu from Cucina Nonna was a good price for a great meal. The waiter helped us each find a wine we would enjoy and was very attentive. Our past was better than any we've had outside Italy. Desserts were awesome - deconstructed... More

This is a nice restaurant near the Four Seasons which hosted the family wedding dinner. The servers work hard and are very pleasant. The room is nice. The food could have been better. The steak dinner portion was small and lacking in presentation. The desserts were terrible. They could do better here.

We had eaten at Cinghiale a couple of years ago during restaurant week and were impressed, and ever since had been itching to go back. I decided to splurge for my birthday, and while the whole meal was not a disaster, it was not impressive enough to justifty spending this kind of money for Italian food. It didn't help that... More

If all of our dishes were hot, I think this would be a 4/5 star review but every dish was lukewarm to cold. I think a big part had to do with their timing on the prezzo fisso, there are kinks there that need to be worked out. With that said, things started out well with the cold cured meats,... More

The menu changes with the mood of the chef and it's creative management. Start with a thinly shaved salami and prosciutto, accompanied by some unique aged cheeses. Entrees are excellent and include a variety of pastas and fish. Good wines complete the evening.

Went there with my family visiting from NYC. The wine selection is out of this world. I live the fact that they have a tradition that the guests can sign their wine bottle and either leave it there, adding it to their displayed collection, or take it with you. The service was excellent. Our server was great and he helped... More

We recently had Friday dinner at Cinghiale and enjoyed the entire experience. From the time we arrived, the service was excellent. Our waitress was cheerful and extremely helpful with the menu (and my bothersome tree nut allergy). The sommelier listened to our input on a wine selection and was easily able to find us a moderately priced of bottle of... More
