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

Cinghiale has chosen to specialize in Northern Italian cuisine. My wife started with an appetizer portion of the Risotto and I got the Gnocchi. Both were very good, cheesy and rich. We both got the Lobster pasta which was excellent. We got the gelato the honey glazed donuts for dessert. We also asked about. Their little almond cookies we tried... More

Had a great meal here with clients. Service and food were both outstanding! The grilled calamari and sliced duck were sensational. Loud but friendly ambiance. Definitely will return!

It has been less than 2 years ago since we were at this restaurant in the Little Italy section of Inner Harbor. We went because we remembered the peach bellini and the Tiramisu. Both were a disappointment as was the service. First we ordered two Tiramisu and 4 peach bellinis to split and we were sitting at the bar. They... More

Overall great experience, sophisticated ambience, extensive wine list interesting menu. The Sulami appetizer was thinly cut with great flavor in each selection. The fois grois was crispy fried on the outside and like butter inside. Main courses were mixed. The squid ink pasta calamari was incredible, and the swordfish perfectly prepared. My wife's entre's, risotto and filet were at best... More

We ordered several appetizers before a main course...one of them was the Risotto special with mushrooms...just awful...a very bad bitter taste and the rice was hard?? This is not a good risotto at a high price?? So we turned that back in....the next course I had was the Pasta Carbonara, which I usually love,but this totally lacked in flavor at... More

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
