We stumbled upon this restaurant after aperitivi in the nearby port. The waiter helpfully got us a little light-headed with some gin & tonic and everything was great. Top food, top service and one of the most attractive interiors in the city, a perfectly romantic night out - we were probably lucky to get in with no reservation

Very good suggestion from our guide thru Palermo... Authentic sicilian but with taste and modernity! Good service, nice ambiance and quite unique taste associations. Both children (12 & 16) enjoyed the experience.

Would recommend making a reservation. They offer 3-7 course sett menus (60-90€) and a la carte menu, with optional wine packages (20-60€). They have a sommelier who was happy to tell about the local wines. Everything from the Foods, service and atmosphere was perfect!

Beeing a sunday evening, many restaurants were closed. We were a bit sceptical to Gagini since work was done in the street, making the exterior less cozy. We arrived at 2100, and had to come back at 2200. We received excellent food, and the service was impecable. Reccomended!!

Their menu is surprising and intriguing. They are innovative and selective with fresh local ingredients. Boyfriend had the tasting menu so I tasted some of his dishes as well. Appetising presentation of all dishes. There was a blackout in the middle of the dinner but it didn't ruin our mood. It was though, the struggle in communicating with the staff... More

It was an amazing experience to have dinner at this wonderful restaurant. The food was among the best I ever had and the service was just perfect. The focus of this venue is on the food with a degree of perfection I've only seen at 3*** restaurants. No posh behavior, no waiters running around with bow ties, nothing which would... More

This restaurant is beautifully furnished and the staff welcoming. We had read on trip advisor that the 60 euro menu was worth the experience so we ordered the cala menu. It is evident from the taste and presentation of each meal that the chief loves his food. My husband had the semellier chose wine for each meal. They were all... More

Our evening at Gagini began with two surprises: first was the street outside under severe construction with unruly neighbors providing "interesting" local color; and second was a mini gin and tonic provided by Gagini as a way to ease into what was to become a unique and wonderful gastronomic journey complete with amuse bouches before our starters and before desert!...

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!
