Menu
Cinghiale (ching-GYAH-lay) - "Wild Boar" in Italian - celebrates the richness and style of the Italian table. The restaurant is designed as a gathering place; the center of downtown where everyone meets for both business and social occasions.

Inspired by the energy of the late 1950's and early 1960's in chic Italian cities like Milano and Bologna, Cinghiale boasts a lively urban bustle in the Enoteca (Wine Bar), and a comfortable elegance in the formal Osteria (Dining Room). Guests find themselves in a beautiful, yet comfortable space. The cooking is authentic and from the heart; the extensive and award-winning wine list brings the world's largest wine-making country to life.

The concept and origin of Cinghiale's menu is the inspiration of Tony Foreman. Tony saw a unique opportunity to build a kitchen that creates honest, modern, and correct regional cooking from Northern and Central Italy - unlike the cooking typical to the U.S. The menu has become the personal expressional of Chef Julian Marucci through study, extensive travels to Italy, and a rich familial connection to the southern Italian region of Apulia.

Chef Marucci's menu showcases a knowledge and respect for classic Italian recipes combined with a talent and a creative spark for modern Italian cooking.

The food was lousy, the waitress was rude, talked too fast and too softly, was self-important and made the food sound a heck of a lot better than it turned out. The staff was extremely interested in selling us bottled water, expensive wine and drinks, but not a decent meal. The atmosphere was stuffy and awkward, making us feel uncomfortable. When the food arrived, I ordered a chicken and pasta dish, I felt like I was playing Where's Waldo with the chicken. It was mixed with the pasta (which was bland, but plentiful), but I also had to look for the bleu cheese and walnuts, which were apparently in the witness protection program. The dessert sounded grandiose. However, the only grandiose thing about my chocolate cake was the price. The actual cake was smaller than a hockey puck, but was quite rich and tasty (I recommend you eat it slowly, as there's not much of it to enjoy). I'm not looking for anything other than good food and service and am happy to pay. Shame on the management. Horrible experience and food. So if you want to pay a lot, get treated rudely, have a minimal amount of real food, this is the place for you. Otherwise, Macaroni Grill or Olive Garden will be a better choice.

The pasta dishes are creative and delicious and are large enough to serve as a small entree. The duck loin was very good. We appreciated the help picking out a wine to suit our tastes.

We went to Cinghiale for a nice dinner with some friends. We found the service mediocre the food bland and without any flavors what so every. Everything is overpriced and poorly presented. Our particular waitress was condescending, annoying and very pushy. We were so disappointed with the meal and service. The only thing that saved this review from being no stars was the restaurants atmosphere is very stunning to bad the food isn't.

Food is great, though too pricey. Tried four dishes, all were flavorful - especially enjoyed the pasta dishes with lamb. Sommelier was excellent with great wine recs.

I have been eating in Baltimore for the last 18 years and I have tried most all of the $$$ and up restaurants and this one is at the top of the list. Amazing food, wine and service.

Anyone who said that their food was bland obviously spends far too much time performing suction on an exhaust pipe. Every. Last. Morsel. Was. Amazing. I smoke and the flavor was over the top and more than I could have anticipated. The service was outstanding and our wait staff worked as a well-coordinated team that anticipated our needs and even brought us items we were unaware we wanted until they arrived. Exemplary experience for my most recent Anniversary, and the overall was amazing. Cheers to the good people at Cinghiale for making an already special night absolutely perfect!
