Disappointing...

Seems odd that the reviews of this place are either over the top or well below average. Count me in the latter group. First strike was the terrible congestion in this part of town. It literally took 20 minutes to navigate the last four blocks to the valet. Crazy congestion. We arrived just in... read more

This was our first trip to Cinghiale. We went for restaurant week ($30 3 courses, and added the wine pairing for another $25). I am always hesitant to add wines, but these were fantastic and complimented the courses. The options are limited, but the mushroom soup was creamy, and topped with an interesting miniature chestnut flan. The salad was cold... More

Cinghiale never fails to impress. The quality of the food, especially the pasta is second to none. The wine list one of the largest I have seen, and the sommeliers can always help find an amazing, but expensive bottle of wine.

Beautiful restaurant. Food is ok. Price is high and portions are very small. Our service was poor. I would not go again

Good Italian food. We come to Baltimore about four times a year with friends to have dinner and spend the night. It has always been Charleston so we thought we would shake things up and try another of Cindy Wolf's restaurants. Mistake. We thought it was going to be high end but was not. Everything we had was good, don't... More

Delicious meal was presented by the service @ Cinghiale. I had the courses served with a paired wine option. Max was very helpful and provided knowledgeable suggestions. Amy and the rest of the wait staff were a delight. The final dessert course was delicious dreamy combination and the plated presentation really temped the senses. I highly recommend this destination if... More

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

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
