We start with lunch in Vernazza at Bar de la Torre, on the path to Corniglia and up several steep flights of steps from the town (starting our up journey behind the railroad station).

And, the food (did I mention this was a restaurant?), once again, tremendous. We share two appetizers and an entrée, lemon anchovies, stuffed anchovies, and the Casillo special: penne with tomatoes, olives, and white fish.
Somehow, both anchovy appetizers disappeared before we remembered to take a picture. However, with some food inside us (and the opening of a bottle of Monterosso local white wine), we remember to take a few of the special.
