What Is the Difference between Rosa and Osteria?

Rosa is our flag­ship restau­rant Word­Press theme, and it’s one of the most famous prod­uct in this par­tic­u­lar niche. It was launched three years ago, and it’s con­stant­ly being improved thanks to the in-depth feed­back we’re receiv­ing from our cus­tomers. It works flaw­less­ly so that you can cre­ate a web­site with­out los­ing too much time, effort or mon­ey.

How­ev­er, we took every­thing we learned in these years, and we invest­ed this knowl­edge into build­ing a new, even more pow­er­ful and sol­id theme.

Oste­ria is built on a new set of in-house devel­oped com­po­nents that offer a high­er lev­el of flex­i­bil­i­ty. While with Rosa you can eas­i­ly do some styling changes, with Oste­ria you can go a step fur­ther since you have a bet­ter con­trol of the ele­ments.

On top of that, the new Demo Con­tent is more than a show­case of its fea­tures. We close­ly ana­lyzed many restau­rant web­sites, and we fig­ured it out a con­sis­tent User Flow. This way, your vis­i­tors can per­form spe­cif­ic tasks aligned with your Key Busi­ness Goals (i.e. make an online reser­va­tion in no time, read your food menu with ease or learn more about your busi­ness in gen­er­al).

Besides that, we added new fea­tures like an improved food menus sys­tem, a sim­pler way to dis­play your open­ing hours, back­ground video for the hero area, sup­port for more reser­va­tions forms and many oth­ers.

We con­stant­ly improve all of our themes and apply the lessons learned from one to anoth­er. Both Rosa and Oste­ria will do their job well and help you cre­ate a stun­ning web­site, but we high­ly rec­om­mend you to pay atten­tion to your goals and take a well-informed deci­sion.

Oste­ria is the right choice if you want to:

  • achieve more flex­i­bil­i­ty in per­son­al­iz­ing your site to fit your needs bet­ter
  • have an improved User Flow that you can use as a con­ve­nient start­ing point for your web­site
  • ben­e­fit of a new Food Menus struc­ture, more ver­sa­tile and straight­for­ward to man­age
  • use an Open­ing Hours sys­tem to show your avail­abil­i­ty

This article applies to Osteria, and Rosa as they share the same underlying structure.
