I have eaten at this place quite a few times now, and it has never disappointed me. It is like food poetry. Not exactly a budget restaurant though

I was at this restaurant at lunch on a Saturday with my wife. A Michelin restaurant (this restaurant got one star) shall be exclusive because of supreme ingredients, fantasy in choosing and elaborating them in excellent dishes. The uniqueness was present... even if sometimes in a too strange way. We took the menu "L'enfasi della natura" (100 EUR), 8 courses... More

Remarkable service, lovely atmosphere and very good food. All the dishes we tried were absolutely delicious and extremely well presented. It fully met my expectations. We will repeat for sure and we will recommend it to all our friends. Complimenti Joia team!

We eat a lot of vegetables usually so were intrigued at the idea of a starred vegetarian restaurant. The online menu had lots of dishes with fun names so we booked two months before and received a confirmation by email, and were really looking forward to it. Imagine our disappointment when we arrived and they had no record of our... More

I fully agree with Difian who posted her review with profound disappointment 2 weeks ago. Creative and tasty vegitable-based dishes, but that's all. All the other important elements, quality of service/staff members, atmosphere, decorations(Cheap and nonsence), much care also for desserts, etc...don't justify 150eur/head at all. Compaired to the other 1-star restaurants in Italy and France, etc... I experienced, I... More

We ate here last weekend, on a 50th surprise birthday trip for my sister.... we are not vegetarians, but wanted somewhere we would all enjoy, without the threat of a meal being spoilt by 'undercooked meat' on such a special occasion..... we chose the 8 course meal 90 euros each, - each course had a name, but it didn't tell...

This is simply the best vegetarian restaurant I have ever tried and I can hardly believe a better one may ever exist. The chef, Mr. Leumann, is a real genius and, despite that, humble and willing to carefully listen to his clients' critiques. The only flaw is that such a wonderful restaurant and chef would deserve a nicer location.

What an amazing place! Beautiful decor that is warm and elegant, staff that are raising the bar on expectations, and a menu that surprises and delights. A top top Milano choice.

Neighbourhood Profile
Stazione Centrale
Central Station represents a bridge towards the future. Impressive skyscrapers and new age buildings stretch the skyline with the majestic Unicredit Tower cutting through. Surrounding it are large towers that define Piazza Gae Aulenti, where the fountain and the Monumento Trombe leave one breathless. A famous building of the district is the Vertical Forest, where the innovative materials and trees planted on the terraces are a unique mix of nature and man-made construction. In the district, there is the Monumental Cemetery, known for its antique tombs with sculptures portraying angels of commemorative scenes many will find touching.
