Very nice traditional style Greek restaurant. The menu was large and it was easy for the kids to find something they liked. The service was good and the food above average.

Why sneer at a business providing menus that benighted tourists can understand in their own language? And some people need pictures to help. The arbour of vines hung with rustic implements provided a secluded shady spot for a cool beer, and the attentive but relaxed...More

Greek classics were very good indeed, beer was always chilled to perfection, they always offered Ouzo as a free aperitif what's not to like.

Rustico's does not need to show you pictures of what food the restaurant thinks you want to eat, yes they do have people outside but they do not push and use menu to show the food. We have eaten here for too many years and...More

Stumbled on this restaurant on our first night in the old town. Amazing food and service. Chicken souvlaki is a must. Also vegetarian pasta was really good.

Picture yourself enjoying a traditional Greek meal, with a small vilage atmosphere, with lush greennery overhead, walls covered with rustc farrmer's toolsand handmade pottery throughou.. This is Rustico!The taverna is situated on the corner of Hippodamou and Sokratous street a junction as the streets were created on the hippodamio system (a city were the streets are in blocks). The area is elevated and there were no archeological findings when excavations were performed thus assuming that a small forest existed which is a characteristic of elevated areas of that time.In the first christianic and Byzantine period after continuous destructions of the ancient town by the Persian, Goths and the Arabs and the town’s forced shrinkage into the Byzantine city the forest park which was destroyed by the fires was now open fields which was left as such for defense purposes since the distance was not far from the existing Byzantine defense wall
