Description: The idea of a “Social Restaurant” in Palermo comes from our wish to merge local elements of Food, Art, Music and Fashion with more open ideas of the whole world. Social is our way of living, sharing our ideas with different cultures, let our guests feeling at home, relaxed, comfortable, at ease and pleasantly pampered. We are in love of Sicily and we try to let people feel it through the food, that now, more than ever before is strictly linked to our territory thanks to a recent cooperation with a "star Chef" who gave his personal touch to our cooking.Symbolic element of our restaurant is the social table where people of different nationalities can share the experience of a Dinner in Gagini Restaurant. Harmony and communication are the elements that characterize this space. And if you desire something different from a “Social Dinner” don’t miss our romantic and perfect tables for a Dinner for two or for a group of friends, family and affair. Our Maxim : Passion and hard work…in a Social way!

It has been the best restaurant experienced in Palermo. Fine food and wine and definitely worth to pay a little more considering the quality. Overall, it was a great experience and would recommend to anyone who is looking for a relaxing atmosphere in Palermo.

We went here for dinner on our last night in Palermo. We were giving a table inside, but just by the large open doors, perfect to experience the buzz and warmth of the streets outside, but enjoy the relaxation of the romantic design inside. The food was lovely and beautifully presented we could not fault any of our meals. It... More

the tagliatelle starter was quite simply one of the best first courses that I have ever eaten and the slow-cooked fillet of beef was to die for. Add in ample portions, friendly and helpful service, and Planeta Chardonnay at under 30 euros a bottle and the chef and staff at this lovely place deserve all the accolades they are currently...

If you want to try something a bit different to the usual Sicilian menus, go here. The staff were lovely and helpful and explained the menu when we asked, as it was all in Italian. It was truly a meal to remember.

What I do remember is that the atmosphere in this restaurant was impressive: historic and full of character, but that I was distinctly disappointed in what we were served. On paper it sounded fine: appetiser croutons, sword fish or tuna and lemon jelly with fruit sorbet. As we were on a coach trip we knew our meals would be down... More

We were advised to take this restaurant. The location id good and the atmosphere was good as well. The wine list was quite expensive compared to the same wines in other restaurants. I have ordered the main dish - special selection of regional Nebrodi pork. It was nicely served on the plate, but the taste did not impress me. In... More
