Featuring trattoria-style Italian fare, Varia serves as a combination lounge, piano bar and tasting room in the heart of Norfolk, VA. Designed with a luxe interior complete with an open kitchen and reclaimed chandeliers, we needed to develop a website that showcases its strengths including a portal for reservations and events.
Varia needed updates for their website that gave easy access to the following:
A Restaurant Portfolio for Showcasing Menus and Services
Subscription Forms to Keep Patrons Up-to-Date with Email Campaigns
Eventbrite Integration for Simple Event Planning and Ticketing
Branding & Product Templates
Product, collection and case study templates were designed to be easily duplicated and adaptable to new purposes. Planning and strategies were incorporated that enhance client agency-- allowing complete and efficient site maintenance by the client.
3rd Party Integration
With a suite of powerful tools at our disposal, everything from event registration to reservations becomes easy to manage. Research is an indispensable component of powerful web design, so when we find a tool that works well, our clients gain mileage. With Mailchimp Email Campaigns and Eventbrite and Dine-time integrations, site management becomes a pleasure.
WordPress, our CMS of choice, is a remarkably potent web platform. Providing high SEO rankings, ease of updates and comprehensive theme customization, WordPress facilitates complete developer/client agency. With these powerful and intuitive tools, clients are able to update their site and maintain their Google search rank after just one short training session.

“As the owner of multiple businesses I’ve had a unique evolution with web designers. Ultimately, in web design, you get what you pay for and as a young entrepreneur, I learned that with cheap web design you end up eventually discarding the project. We chose Greenstone Media for our media and design work, and have been extremely happy with everything they’ve produced… from the magazine ads to online graphics and web design work. I highly recommend Greenstone for your media and web design needs.”
“Greenstone Media is my favorite software development and digital strategy team and an ideal business partner. Through great information, innovation, and a data-driven approach they consistently deliver on our goals – more customers with less effort, increased goal conversions by 77%, and AdWords performance now up 200%.”

"I was very impressed with the Greenstone Media team and absolutely love my new website. They were quick with development, met my deadline, and stayed within my budget. They were also patient with my "web ignorance" and didn't try to "sell" me a package like a lot of the other thumbtack pros and companies I got quotes from. Thanks to the Greenstone team for helping me with my marketing!"

“We hired Greenstone Media to help us design and develop an eCommerce website for our Fishing Charter Business so our customers could book online. The website works great, easy for us to manage, and our customers love how easy it is for them to book online. Later we hired Greenstone to create a marketing plan to help us increase online bookings. They helped us implement the marketing plan and they do SEO and Google Ads for our business. They helped us increase our online bookings by almost 20 bookings in the first month!"
