North London represent. Despite the EN postcode I will call Enfield North London. Less than ten miles away it should be easy to see friends, however London traffic likes to play games with what should be normal.
By the time i arrived at my friends place, we were out the door to go to have Italian food at Nelitos.
A family friendly restaurant we were greeted with a lovely lady, who looked like the mother of the group and shortly after taken to our seats by the father. Warm friendly smiles were lovely and the smell of seafood took over too. Seated and Greeted we looked over the menu.
Seated and presented with the menu, I was happy to see no Pizza options. I do love Pizzas but had too many recently and was craving pasta. Looking at the chefs specials and the menu I saw good things. From stuffed mushrooms to aubergine and asparagus, calamari and prawns, it all looked warm and appealing.
I went for the calamari and when cooked properly and fresh it is a delight. I cannot vouch for how fresh it was, but it was tasty and crispy, drizzled with lemon and alongside tartar sauce, this was delicioso. I wished there was more, but that would have been greedy on my behalf.
My mind was made up before hand about having a creamy pasta. I looked down the menu and honestly nothing stood out for me initially based on my fussy nature. I ignored the meat and fish section of the menu which was extensive as I was being stubborn. Due to the friendly nature of the staff, i however did the best thing and asked the waiter. The happy father figure recommend for my picky tastes a lovely dish - mushroom creamy pasta. THANKYOUSIR.
Good service, nice house wine and homemade and hearty food.
You got to love the outskirts of London. There is more out there you there and Nelitos provide good quality for all.
