It was a rainy monday evening and out of the touristic season. The streets and restaurants in Balestrate were a little bit dead. We were planning to find our luck elsewhere when we passed this small tratoria. From the outside it looks real simple and to be frank the decor inside isn't all that. But it was one of the... More

We went there on the first evening of our Holiday - based upon positive TA evaluations. We were friendly received by Geronimo, and food was fine. So we went back to Geronimo on the last evening for our farewell Balestrate meal. Surely: best restaurant in Balestrate!

Our expectations were raised by this being the number 2 ranked restaurant in Balestrate. Lets get some perspective- its a simple place with 8 tables: wine is either red or white by the half litre ( no bottles) and you drink it out of chunky water tumblers. My non seafood eating partner had a breaded steak- ok, nothing else comes... More

A very nice restaurant (trattoria) located on end of the main street. We stayed almost 2 weeks and we almost went there every evening. The owner (Geronimo) is a very friendly person who is always prepared to give advise on what you might like and most of the time you won`t be disappointed! Everything is fresh and tastes good. And...

Nothing specal, average quality, the last place to go in Balestrate. Geronimo himself is a very good and kind person, so i do not feel good to write this, but frankly speaking he has to improve. BUT- his caponata was the best for 10 years i've tasted! And i hope that other guests will enjoy his kitchen. He is not... More

We visited this restaurant in sunday evening at 20:45 and luckily took last table. This is not a restaurant but tavern, one small hall with 8 tables, decorations are very simple. The host is a very kind and colourful person. He took our order very quickly with the helpful recommendations. Menu was very simple with common local dishes. Unfortunately there... More
