Just six miles southwest of Manchester city centre is the resurgent town of Urmston.
It’s a town which has a new energy as it has been transformed from a small but popular market town into a bustling, trendy, friendly district of independent shops, wine bars, cafes and restaurants.
There’s one restaurant in particular that is leading the way in helping put Urmston firmly on the map as the place to not only dine and drink but also be seen!
Mulino on the corner of Primrose Avenue, in the heart of Urmston is a new concept Prosecco bar, all day restaurant and ultra stylish lounge.
The owner Zola Martini has put his heart and soul into making Mulino one of the best for locals and visitors alike.
Mulino opened its doors with a dazzling launch party in the presence of the Mayor of Trafford Cllr. Tom Ross on the 10th of March 2019.
The star studded guest list included Cold Feet star John Thompson, Coronation Street’s Jimmi Harkishin, heavyweight boxing champion Hughie Fury with his father and trainer Peter Fury alongside female boxing sensation Savannah Marshall.
BBC Radio Manchester’s Phil Trow and Chris Brindley also attended the event and live entertainment was provided by rat pack vocalist Wayne Devlin who has a residency at the restaurant on the second Thursday of each month.
Since the opening night Mulino has gone from strength to strength with many of the famous faces returning on a regular basis to not only enjoy the beautiful food on offer but also the top class service and of course to see the wonderful maestro of Mulino, Zola Martini!
Zola is quite a character and is very much a people person. Visitors to Mulino are not just customers to Zola they are his friends and everyone is made welcome and really well looked after. It is these warm and friendly personal touches that keep drawing customers back again and again.
“We aim to provide great quality, authentic Italian food at sensible prices and to provide informal but excellent service to our customers. We are very proud to offer everything from Neapolitan pizza, pasta dishes to cicchetti and aperitivo. At Mulino there really is something for everyone.”
It looks like other media has also fallen in love with Mulino, as the restaurant has been featured on BBC Radio Manchester as well as on national TV with BBC One programme, Food: Truth or Scare.
Mulino regular Jimmi Harkishin, who has portrayed Dev Alahan on Coronation Street for over twenty years stated “It’s lovely food at Mulino and a really great atmosphere”.
Former Mayor of Trafford Cllr. Tom Ross said:
‘It was lovely to be invited as then Mayor to the opening of Mulino last year. I was really impressed with the food and warm welcome that evening and have been back a number of times since. The level of service is always as great as the food- one of my favourite places to go to eat in Trafford.”
As Urmston continues its progression with a new food hall in the planning, a scattering of new bars and restaurants popping up across the town and with more and more visitors to the area it seems that Mulino is leading the way in making Urmston the place to be
