The service was impeccable. The cocktails, turnip soup and calamari appetizer were delicious. We thought the two pasta dishes we ordered were interesting and flavorful. The short rib entree that we shared was odd. The short rib meat was compressed into a dense square. It almost looked like a brownie. The flavor was okay, and the potato succotash was slightly...

These people really pay attention to what wine will complement what meal, so take their advice. Even if you think you're an expert, let them guide you. The food is terrific, and it's made even better by a smart and wide-ranging wine list. You'll love the way they present it, too -- by region and not just by Red/White/Sparkles.

I hosted a dinner for 24 people at Cinghiale's. We had planned this dinner far in advance, but the number of attendees kept changing and Cinghiale's worked with me and changed the room a couple of times based on the number of people attending. Even as late as two days before the event. They were very flexible and accommodating. They... More

Our first night in Baltimore we had the most wonderful meal! This is a beautiful restaurant with an outstanding menu. The house made pasta appetizers were as good as anything I've ever had in Italy. The portion size was perfect. The branzino was fresh and perfectly cooked. I rarely ever eat everything on my plate but I did here.

I see some of the other reviews, such as "overrated" and "nice Italian place wit great pasta" and I think they are missing totally what this restaurant is all about. It is not a red sauce and pasta Italian restaurant! Go to Little Italy in Baltimore for that. Cinghiale offers a more sophisticated Italian experience, at least in the Osteria... More

As a native of the City, now living in San Francisco, I enjoy their Italian wine list, appetizers, and pastas. It reminds me of Otto in NYC sans the crowd and is very good versus its local competition. People who are accustomed to the best of our biggest cities, will feel at home here others who prefer the Little Italy... More

There are better choices all over the area. This is not one of them. Walk past it and go to Ouzo Bay for a really fine dinner

Had a business dinner here and was impressed. It's very dark, so I needed the flashlight from my cell phone to read the menu, which is pretty extensive. All the pasta dishes we had were highly praised. My octopus risotto was outstanding. The halibut entree was very good and the chocolate gelato tremendous. Nice decor and fair prices. Highly recommended.

Also happened to be 1/2 price wine night which enabled us got enjoying some really nice Amarone. Food very nicely prepared, flavorful. Service was top notch. I had big eye tuna which was perfect, seared rare. Very nice fresh texture to the fish. I brought some guys from Rome and they loved the pasta, very fresh made in house. There... More
