We had a table in the back with a nice view to the open kitchen. We ordered the Zenith menu, which was the one with most servings. Almost every dish told a story by it's look and the food was incredible tasty. Some of the dishes were even too heavy and it was difficult to enjoy the last 3-5 dishes... More

Amazing vegetarian food. 8 course tasting menu was great, extremely filling - so best to go for shorter menu if you are not a big eater or the a la carte. Excellent champagne by the glass. Have yet to find another vegetarian restaurant in the world that beats this one.

This is a restaurant that takes all of your senses into account. My dessert was served with a 5 minute timer (that was part of the name :) and my first course looked like a painting! I was very impressed with all of the vegan options --- it was not slim pickings! (My chocolate 5 minute dessert was vegan as... More

"Amazing food" doesn't even begin to describe the experience of eating at Joia. Every dish has a specific and wanted perfume, appearance, texture and taste; anyone should try it (even non vegetarians). Elegant and nice place and staff make the restaurant perfect.

Great experience. Chef Lemhann crew deliver a great cuisine. Went with discovery menu (I'm actually a novice in veggie food) and I was surprised for tastes and flavor. Great canteen and careful attendant. Back again for sure. Of course, expect a proportionate bill with a Michelin starred

Form over function - I am a vegetarian and was so excited about this restaurant. The service and presentation was excellent, too bad about the taste. The first course was a slice of a number of different veg with little dips, very beautiful but seriously tasteless. Next came what looked like a cheese ball and that's when it got really... More

A vegetarian art restaurant which you can never see in any other place in the world. Everything is delicious, everything is perfect and well done. Michelin knows who to award, indeed!

My wife is a Vegetarian and so we go to Vegetarian restaurants quite regularly. This place was a standout for us. Save some room for one of the desserts called "Gong" which was a highlight dish. The best Vegetarian place in Milan.

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.
