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 than a sweet to finish the meal however we were treated to dessert to celebrate our Anniversary. The service was deliberate if not a little slow however we were in no rush so the pace sooted us. All the food was wonderful as was the attentive service. My only pet peeve is the wine policy at many restaurants in Maryland. As the laws have been loosened it is up to the local jurisdictions and the restaurants in them to decide if wine can be brought from outside. The owners of Cinghiale have invested in making their wine list exceptional, it would be nice to be able to bring a special bottle to dinner to celebrate our special occasion. As it was we did find a lovely Barbaresco to drink and the sommelier was helpful in leading us toward a bottle we would enjoy with the meal. All in all it was an enjoyable night and if the wine policy was different I probably would choose to eat here more often.
