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!

“One of the best meals I've ever eaten - FACT”
Reviewed 9 April 2012

Wonderful from start to finish. Set in the entrance to the wonderful tumbledown Viccuria market, this place is a total joy. Our table was still full when we arrived, so the waitress gave us a glass of wine each and we had a very pleasant drink at the bar. You simply can't fail to enjoy yourself here, with its little candles glowing out from the holes in the stone walls and friendly service there's a great vibe. And then there's the food. JESUS CHRIST! It's stunning. Little teeny amuse bouche thingies that arrive unasked for and blow your mind, the biggest and most delicious scampi I've ever eaten in my entire life, artichoke amazingness, spaghetti with prawns is one of the best things I've ever put in my mouth, delicious Bacalao, a little glass of panna cotta with frutti di bosce on top, delicious wine. Honestly, I don't think I've ever left a restaurant quite so happy. If you're in Palermo, go to this restaurant, trust me, you'll be delighted you did.

p.s. If you're feeling brave and want a drink on your way home, turn right out the restaurant a dn stroll up the street to the market square. It's double edgy and feels like it might be about to come tumbling down at any minute, but it's one of the coolest places I've been.
