About Us

Mediterranean in nature, Peregrine is an exploration of the cuisine and culture from the Italian islands of Sardinia and Sicily — as well as the neighboring influences of Corsica and Catalonia. Named in part for the Peregrine falcon common to these places, the restaurant takes its cues from everything that bird might see throughout its journey. The name also means traveler, who we readily welcome to our corner of Boston's iconic Beacon Hill.
