Cinghiale is located in a great part of town on the water. The restaurant is large and well decorated, but some may find it noisy and crowded. We were disappointed we had to wait 20 minutes, despite having a reservation. We were directed to the bar and, despite being rather empty, we waited over... read more

This is my favorite restaurant in Baltimore and I have been there unless times since it opened six or seven years ago. It is owned by a couple which has several of the top restaurants in Baltimore, including Charleston across the street. It is located in the best residential/urban are of Baltimore, on the water and has two large rooms,... More

Great choice for Italian fine dining. Group of 3 started with Calamari and Rabbit. Primi of Gnocchi and Risotto, Secondi was the evening special. Dessert was delicious, too. Will be back.

Six visits later ,over five years ,and still excellent. The menu was imaginative,the prix fixe choices provided a satisfying dinner,and the wine list,although overpriced,is well chosen and most assuredly comprehensive. The wait staff is courteous ,properly attentive, and several have been knowledgeable about wines.

The food at Cinghiale is beyond compare! Great wine selection, could sit at the bar all night. Love the ambience of this restaurant, favorite place to go when I'm in Baltimore -- with business colleagues or alone.

This is one of Baltimore's best Italian restos, if not the best. Chef Julian easily accomodated my dietary requests for their super delish roast duck whilst keeping the refined taste and integrity of the dish. Their wine list and menu are varied and in a word spectacular. My husband and I will definitely come back to this beautifully appointed, water-view... More

This was our first experience at Cinghiale, and certainly will not be our last. This is elegant dining, and the entire meal is an ethereal experience. The service is exceptional; courteous, knowledgeable, professional but never overbearing or rushed. The best description of the food is multidimensional. Chef Julian creates dishes that layer flavor upon flavor so that every bite presents... More

We moved to Baltimore last year for me to start my PhD in Italian. I lived in Italy for several years and I just adore finding the few restaurants in the US that manage to capture the true essence of contemporary Italian cuisine. Cinghiale has nailed it. They are the real deal. We've been about once a month since we... More

It was a lovely summer night so we sat outside. Food was terrific and Tuesday is 1/2 price bottles of wine. Staff was very attentive and helpful on both the menu and wine selection.
