Pronto By The Sea serves up authentic italian comfort food in the heart of Lauderdale-by-the-sea. They needed a brand new look and feel, moving away from an old and out of date website. At Pronto, their selection of fine foods and dishes are beautifully prepared. The goal of the website was to showcase and excite the users, enticing them to visit.
Pronto can now accept reservations online, keep patrons excited with new events, and beautifully display their menu.
We decided to make a striking visual experience for the visitors. They immediately are presented with imagery of the restaurant as well as a slideshow of specials. The style and color of the site were pulled from the current logo. Reintroducing the red in key locations provide a consistency that was missing on the old site.
We developed several key features to this new website. First was the display of the restaurant and events. This was accomplished with a large slide show on the homepage as well as a gallery of upcoming events.
A well designed menu page was also developed. This included several pages of separation for Lunch, Dinner, Specialty menus. Throughout these pages imagery was laid out with photos of choice dishes and enticing taglines.
Important to Pronto was accepting reservations. We developed a system to easily accept small to large party reservations; automatically emailing the restaurant and patron with event details. A calendar was created to show reservation dates and with admin access block out certain reservation date requests.
This site was developed on WordPress and is hosted on our own full managed VPS.
Pronto has seen increased activity on site and interest in the restaurant by way of emails and phone calls. The advanced functionality fo the reservation system has allowed them to book large parties at the click of a button.
