Had a dinner while in Palermo with a friend. Superb food. Definitely a Michelin-star restaurant. We went from appetizers, thru first course to the dessert. In mid-week the place was even not so busy. Also true we were out of the main season. What I missed was more attention to us, as guests. We had to pour wine ourselves, they... More

Excellent, sophisticated food, friendly professional stuff, great selection of wines. High-end dining. Yes, it is pricey, but such food does not come for free. :) Highly recommended as great decoration of Sicily vacations.

We've been traveling around for 2 weeks and this is the best meal we've had in Sicily. Very fine dining. Beautiful presentation. Interesting flavors. A real sommelier who will help you choose the right wine. Friendly & professional service. All dishes were not perfect, but all executed with great care.

Address: Villa Massari 35-90133 Palermo, central downtown near the harbor. Popular with locals, full by 9:30. Reservations essential, small dining room, walk-ins were turned away at the door. Our guide "knew someone who knew someone" at the restaurant, and was able to get a reservation 24 hours ahead for a Sunday night. Reservations more in advance are probably required for... More

Our research indicated that this would be a good place to take our only meal in Palermo while ashore from our cruise ship, probably the one and only time we will be in Palermo all in all. However, our experience here was a highlight and the food was amazing. The staff were great and it wasnt overly pricey. definitely glad... More

Food is a matter of taste. Tonight it was mine (and those of our small family group). We tasted quite a lot of plates and each of them was creative, well presented and a perfect mix of different flavors. Notably, desserts were at the same level than dishes. We had a nice cattarato wine (barrel). What else? Portions allow to... More

FiIt's not cheap to eat there, but well worth it! One of the best places I've dined in - period. The restaurant has a rustic, very cosy and comfortable atmosphere which sets a stage for an amazing meal. Sicillian food at it's best. The produce they use is of very high quality and respecting the ever growing crowd of non... More

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!
