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.

This place was simply one of the nicest dining experiences in a long while. Service was impeccable. Food outstanding. Excellent wine selections. I can't imagine what one could whine about. Service was attentive overall, and the ambiance is lovely- cozy, sophisticated, and romantic. The owner, Stefania (?) has a fantastic charm and a true sense of hospitality, the kind where... More

Had a great night, and so we booked again 2 nights later! Very good food and service. Davide the sommelier was outstanding. I could have spent the whole week sampling everything he had on the shelves!

Food good. Staff with the right attitude. Interesting decor. Highly recommended for lunch or dinner. Creative dishes and the good thing is they are not too big. We hit a bottle with cork but the waiter handled it well. Readily agreed and replaced.

On one of my last days in Sicily my husband took me to Gagini's for lunch. What a treat. The reviews were so accurate. Yes, the food is amazing, the chef creative and talented and the ambiance a welcome change from the busy streets of Palermo. I had a white fish with artichoke purée and a quarter of an artichoke....

We found this restaurant by accident and ventured inside to find an authentic, rustic, cosy and warm atmosphere. The service was excellent, the waiters attention to detail was also excellent. The food and of course the wine was very tasteful.

Got recommended to go by a close friend, the experience ended up being amazing. The food was amazing, the attention to detail was just breathe taking. I would highly recommend this place to all couples, not so much to families due to the atmosphere being romantic.

This was by far the best meal in Sicily and one of the best in Italy and Southern France, where we spent 2014. We found it by a chance, just walking by on a Friday evening after an overnight crossing from Napoli.
