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 Ambience was nice. The Waiter did not present his name when introducing himself,Menu was not properly explained.Although the room was dimly lit with candles,the menu print was very small.So it was very difficult in reading the menu.For an Italian restaurant the portions was quite small, The salmon had no flavor .The only thing that was nice is the dessert and calamari,in which was fit for a 3 year old,I thought coming for NY i would be impressed with a nice restaurant in Baltimore.

My entire party was disappointed. The over-cooked lamb chops took a very long time to arrive. I did enjoy the grilled magret of duck my girlfriend ordered but the portion was small enough to confuse for an appetizer. Lobster ravioli another person in the party ordered had a rubbery texture. The cappuccino was delicious because it signaled the end to the sub par experience. Cinghiale is an overpriced Olive Garden with excellent valet service.

this is NOT your typical Italian restaurant. It is a three or four course menu. Not everyone will like the choices of the day. If you're looking for veal parm or pasta bolognese, this is not the place for you. If you're a foodie, it's a must try. Servers are extremely knowledgeable and pleasant, and they should be, with an average two-top costing $300 if you do some wine. At a minimum of $50 a table in tips, I'd be nice too. The downside: On busy evenings, their valet service is horrendous. And without a doubt, Porsche's and Jag's get immediate attention. We drove our Ford that night, and waited a total of 35 minutes for our car. We watched as people who had just gotten their dessert when we turned in our valet ticket walked out and jumped in their Mercedes with little wait. We even watched a group of gentleman who had three cars between them: a porsche, a jag, and a VW. The Porsche and Jag were out in 5 minutes. The guy with the VW was stuck, like us. We wished we'd driven our BMW that evening so we could have gotten home earlier. What's more, the manager insisted the car priority wasn't the case - despite our showing him blatant examples as he watched. This is definitely a restaurant foodies should try. Just drive a nice car, or walk - or you'll be waiting a while.

Had a great dinner here. There was complimentary valet. The staff were very attentive. The food was absolutely delicious and the location was fantastic. I'd highly recommend Cinghiale for fine dining in Baltimore.

Prior to heading to Cinghiale I heard from others that they didn't enjoy the food at this restaurant in comparison to other Cindy Wolf restaurants. Rather than taking their advice and reconsidering the venue, my boyfriend and I were terribly disappointed. The service took very long! Food was bland, very small portions, wine selection not so impressive ... It took 30 mins before I received my first cocktail! Bad food waste of $150!

Went to Cinghiale last year. One of worst experiences in years. The bartender had no idea how to make an Old Fashion. It was watered down with ice to the point you could not taste the bourbon. Sent it back. I ordered the wine pairings with my meal. The waitress placed this cheesy looking paper placement with circles emblazoned with the name of the wine that will be served. I felt like a 5th grader. The service was interminably slow that night. I remember the appertizers were deceit, but my entree also had to be sent back and the I waited and waited. My wife had finished her meal by the time my entree returned. The head witress apologized for all of the inconsistencies and offered us complimentary desserts. I vowed to never return, but I was given another gift certificate to Cinghiale so I am hoping that the next visit will be better.

Always on point! I've never once had ANYTHING that wasn't worth every dime in this establishment. Service is top notch and the food expertly prepared, EVERY time. The knowledge of the staff, both from a menu and wine perspective, is in keeping with significantly more expensive dining experiences. Hands down one of my favorite places for special occasions!
