Mulino Mule is a small restaurant with a green facade located in the Belleville district, a popular district of Paris not very well known by tourists, and more precisely in the pretty rue Sainte-Marthe.
Rue Sainte-Marthe is worth a visit, at least for its colorful fronts: blue, yellow, pink, green. Rue Sainte Marthe has shops, a pretty little square with two very lively terraces for when the weather is fine and several restaurants, including Mulino Mule.
This restaurant was born from the collaboration between Cédric Casanova, the owner of “La tête dans les olives”, a delicatessen located in the same street, Roberto Rispoli, the former chef of the Royal Monceau, and Marco Mulè, the farmer who supplies the old wheat.
Here, the pasta is homemade three times a week from the wheat grains that are processed into flour on-site at their own mill. A la carte, there are just a few choices, focaccias and fresh pasta, but everything is excellent. Personally, I love their bread.
Every day, the recipe for the pasta of the day varies according to the arrivals. It’s simple, but with high-quality products. Besides that, the completely Sicilian staff is adorable. Indeed, if the pasta of the day does not suit you, they will offer you another sauce according to your tastes and what they have available. Just ask them!
