** I strongly encourage you to read it **


Please note:
Although all options, menu items and menu categories get deleted from the database along with the table that holds any orders you may have received, you will manually have to delete any additional pages (such as the order page for example) that have been created as i have no way of knowing if you are using this page elsewhere or have changed the content/name of it.
The same goes for the 3 example icons that come with this plugin as they might be in use elsewhere.

Second project with this plugin. Does what it says and more. Clear documents online and superb support when needed. Twice really amazed. Thanks!

I tested a lot of others plugins and themes, this is the best. It should also have the table reservation extension, because many restaurants would like their customers to book with the menu already filled out.

This plug-in has helped save my clients business as they move from a full-service restaurant to take-out and delivery during the pandemic. We were able to roll out a fully functional online ordering system with ease and at minimal expense. Easy for the client to use and customizations for just about everything. The few questions I've had or glitches I've encountered were addressed almost immediately through the forum or by email, with great solutions and - when needed - plugin updates rolled out next day. This is one of the best business-changing plugins I've used. I highly recommend it. And best of all, try it out the free version to work out the integrations and designs so you can be sure it works well with your site. Thank you Oliver!

Thanks a lot for this plugin! I installed it for two restaurants next door - they had to switch to delivery and take-away from one day to the other (corona virus restrictions). With your plugin and just a few hours of configuration and testing, they are now (hopefully) able to survive economically during the corona crisis. Your plugin is awesome!

Our requirements were an elegant and fully customizable room service ordering system for our 5-star boutique hotel... and WP-Pizza delivered! 😉 The interface is super clean and offers our guests a great user experience. Support is amazing. Do not be deceived by the name, WP-Pizza is a very powerful and versatile tool for anyone selling anything where a seamless and great user experience is key. This is not Woocommerce's strong suit.
