What is the difference between Rosa2 and Rosa1/Osteria?

Rosa2 is our flagship restaurant WordPress theme. It’s constantly being improved thanks to the in-depth feedback we’re receiving from our customers, and it works flawlessly so that you can create a website without losing too much time, effort, or money.

One of the main differences between Rosa2 and Rosa1/Osteria is related to the way they are built. Rosa2 is built on the new block editor from WordPress, while Rosa1/Osteria uses the classic editor and an in-house page builder.

At the same time, Rosa2 comes with a few more features that are not available in Rosa1/Osteria, like a Cards Collection Block, an Advanced Gallery Block, a Sharing System Block, a Conversation System, and more customization options for each website section.

Below is an example of a one-page website created with Rosa2:

Rosa1 and Osteria is the right choice if you:

  • are familiar with the classic editor from WordPress and prefer to use it;
  • don’t need the extra features from Rosa2 and what you see in Osteria’s demo is enough to get you started;
  • prefer a theme with more design and functional constraints, so you don’t have to make too many decisions.

Rosa2 is the right choice if you:

  • prefer a more visual editing experience when creating pages and want to take advantage of the new block editor from WordPress;
  • plan on adding more features to your website as time goes on to match with your changing needs;
  • want to the possibility to customize the website on a more granular level;

We constantly improve all of our themes and apply the lessons learned from one to another. Both Rosa2 and Rosa1/Osteria will do their job well and help you create a stunning website, so we highly recommend paying attention to your goals and make a well-informed decision regarding what fits your needs in the long run.
