We went here on the advice of Stefania,the restaurant owner, as we are her Airbnb guests at Casa Maletto. Everything about the restaurant exudes style and professionalism, as does her house and also her cocktail bar, Bocum and other restaurant, Buatta. We both chose the fish tasting menu, which was inventive and delicious.( I had already eaten an Arancini for... More

Just enjoyed one of the most interesting and enjoyable lunches in a delightful place. This is a place that respects and understands food, ingredients and a chef with the skills to deliver. Matched by friendly service and knowledgeable wine selections. Every detail dish, including the breads were of the highest standards. A must.

We had a very delicious dinner. No, we had the best dinner during our trip to Sicily. Food is wonderfull, staff is friendly, interior is nice and wine is also good. It is a bit pricy but worth every penny!

Very nice place, good services, very well presented dishes and tasteful food and a good selection of wines. Expensive and small portions, but it's worth dining here.

Located close to the Marina, Gagini is a beautiful small restaurant with very good service, food, wine etc. I took my wife here on a vacation "date night" and it was perfect ambience for the occasion. I very much enjoyed talking with the Sommelier and appreciated the gin and tonic aperitifs that they bring you at the beginning!

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!!

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!
