Snack Bar : Riomaggiore, Italy

Since the sun was setting, we unfortunately had to end up skipping the fourth village, Manarola, and taking  the train back to Riomaggiore.

After cleaning up, we headed to the main street for a late night snack at Snack Bar, what seemed more of a small bar that had snacks.  (There were a few locals there gathered around, watching a soccer game on the tv)

We ended up getting some pasta with al pesto sauce.

They ended up nuking the thing in the microwave and this was not exactly high-quality dining, but it hit the spot at the moment, being more comfort food of sorts.  The pesto was more on the thicker and oily side, but the flavors of the olive oil and the bits of basil leaves came through strongly.  The pasta was of course fresher than what you'd get in the States, but what only par from a bar type place in Italy.
