Cinghiale offers two different atmospheres for you to enjoy our fine dining establishment.
The Osteria at Cinghiale has the feel of an elegant tavern with white table-cloths and mahogany and leather banquettes. It features a large farm table for a special family-style dining experience.
The Enoteca at Cinghiale celebrates the modern Italian table. It is designed to be a playful section of the restaurant, as well as a gathering place. The space has a lively urban bustle that features rich woods, wrought iron chandeliers and a handcrafted marble tile floor. Adjacent to the main bar is a Salumeria that features traditional meats, cheeses and antipasti.
The menu is complimented by an over 500 label wine list that features Northern and Central Italian wines. World of Fine Wine magazine recognized Cinghiale for having one of the best wine lists in the world for 2016. Outdoor seating is available, weather permitting.

Cinghiale Ratings and Reviews

Service was good. Food tasted good but portions were too small. Descriptions in menu of items were not the same as how waiter described them. One interesting (and delicious) corn-based meal came out more like a stew or soup rather than a solid meal as suggested in the menu. Disappointing and left me hungry. Also, I thought for what we got, the prices were too high. The specialty drinks were very good. Nice presentation, good taste and seasonally appropriate. I will probably not go back soon however. I would try other restaurants in the area first. Place was clean however and had a high-class feel to it.

I have been eating here for personal and business for years. Always delivers. Great rooms for business group dinners and presentations. Very accommodating for medical industry events that are subject to PHARMA and ADVAMED price limitiations.

Magnificent. Innovative and excellent cuisine. Incredible service. Amazing wines. This was one of the finest restaurants I have ever eaten in, maybe THE finest, and that is saying a lot: I grew up in New York, lived in Chicago, and have been to almost every major city in the USA. I have eaten in many wonderful establishments. But Cinghiale is dining par excellence. Kudos to management, chefs, staff, etal. You all gave my husband and I a most memorable anniversary. When considering cost vis-a-vis quality, Cinghiale is actually a bargain.
We will be returning.

Cinghiale is an excellent restaurant. We always eat in the Enoteca (bar area) as it is a little less formal than the dining room. The service is immaculate with staff attention only when you need it. The pace is renowned for its Italian wine list so it's fun to do a multiple course prix fixed supper with wine pairings selected by the restaurant.
I could go there and tell them to bring me some food and I'm positive I would love it - whatever they brought.

LOUD LOUD LOUD detracted from beautiful surroundings, excellent service and delicious and elegantly-plated food.
WOMEN'S BATHROOM - beware of dangerously loose toilet seats! This is not just a nuisance, it is truly dangerous. The first one I chose was so loose that practically threw me into a wall. Unacceptable anywhere anytime. To their credit, the stall was closed and appropriate sign placed when I pointed it out to the manager. Sadly, the next time I went to the bathroom before leaving, ANOTHER loose seat was available.
No one wants to get hurt. No one wants to soil their clothing. And no one should have to put up with that! It is INCONCEIVABLE that management was unaware and even worse, did not stay on top of the situation. A real hazard.

Great food and attentive service as always. Extensive and fabulous wine list which is perfect for the 50% wine special they have every Tuesday. Everything on the menu hits the spot from the appetizers to the tasty espresso. Can't miss this spot when in Baltimore

Hadn't been to Baltimore in a while but we always liked Cinghiale and wanted to try it again. Plus this turned out to be Restaurant Week so we all ate from this menu. Fabulous salads, I loved the fish, the pasta was slightly less exciting, and great desserts. It hasn't lost its charm.

We had not been to Cinghiale in over a year, and decided to splurge for my husband's birthday. While sipping our wine, a panhandler visited the table next to ours. The outdoor manager/sommelier/servers said nothing. My husband ordered a salad with no cheese. Our server then brought a bowl of tortellini as a treat after our salads. Thanks, we said, but he doesn't eat cheese. This was wrapped to go for me. Along with our dessert, my husband ordered a cappuccino that took 8-10 minutes to arrive and THEN the server apologized for the cheese issues by pouring us limoncello right at about when we wanted to settle the check. We stayed and did leave a full tip out of guilt, not pleasure. We won't be back any time soon.

Another great meal at Cinghiale! Fantastic and very knowledgeable service from our waitress, Valencia, who not only illuminated the menu choices, but offered advice based on the weather (hot! and we were at an outside table at our request) and the local soon-to-be-out-of-season offerings. She was as fabulous as the chef's selections!

Whether you do the full tasting menu, the more limited menu, or go à la carte, there are a wealth of delicious choices at Cinghiale. The wait staff is very attentive, the courses come to the table at an appropriate pace, and the views of the harbor are delightful. If you're a fan of other Foreman-Wolf restaurants (Petit Louis, Pazo, etc.), Cinghiale will not disappoint!

Cinghiale is rivaling Aggio at the very top of modern Italian dining in Baltimore. We started with the Chef's choice of cheeses and meats. They were so wonderful that we discussed just ordering more instead of having dinner. We ended up ordering the veal ravioli, salmon with roe, and the lamb. What an enjoyable meal. By the way, Cinghiale has an amazing wine program.

Food was great, service was super pleasant but had a few hiccups from bread service, to missing courses and forgetting drinks. Service wasn't smooth but the food over preformed.
Slow night it happens. Everyone was kind and gracious, just wasn't as polished as it needed to be.
It could not have been better.
I have gone to Cinghiale a number of times, some for business, others for pleasure. Each time I have experienced excellent (northern Italian) food, attentive (but not intrusive) service, vibrant (but relaxing) ambiance, and a superb (most Italian) wine list.
But this time, for my wife's and my 1st wedding anniversary, Cinghiale outdid themselves. We had a sidewalk table (which they had to switch out because of wobbly legs, but they did so with a minimum of bother to us). We had two servers, who somehow coordinated their efforts seamlessly; both were knowledgeable about the food, but without the kind of pretense that you often see in restaurants like this. The dishes were well-paced, and the food itself was delicious.
I was meaning to send the restaurant a note, thanking them for such a special evening. However, I am glad to have this opportunity to share my thoughts with others.

CInghiale is hands down one of my top restaurants to visit when I'm in Baltimore. When I lived here for 13 years, it was also one of my favorites where I'd go to celebrate or for special occasions. This trip back was no different. The food was exquisite. The chef is top notch in regards to his creativity and cooking. Service was solid. I'll definitely be back again the next time I'm in town.
-Salumeria was excellent.
-Risotto is done the way it should be... perfectly al dente.
-Plating was fantastic.

I really like this place.
The wine bar is aloud louder and a more energetic crowd. That's fine for us because we know what to expect when we go there. The food is really good.
It jus seems the service for a Harbor East fine dining venue could be better. A little more professionalism and attentiveness. The past two times it just seems that some of the wait staff would fit in better at a neighborhood spot or a more casual setting.
Just my two cents!

Incredible Mother's Day brunch! We were able to sit outside and the setting was lovely. The food & drinks were amazing! Highlights were the salmon tartare and squid ink bucatini. Service was perfect! Love this restaurant so much!
