Food and drink
Joia is that extreme rarity, a Michelin-starred haute cuisine vegetarian restaurant. The food is light and magnificent, fabulously presented, fusing influences from across the world, and using flowers as well as vegetables for maximum impact. The menu changes with the season and Swiss chef Pietro Leemann is never afraid to experiment with avant garde flavour combinations.
The restaurant is split into three separate dining rooms to maintain a degree of intimacy, all three decorated in blonde woods and pale stones to give a cool, serene environment.
Cool and efficient.
Near Stazione Centrale and Corso Buenos Aires.
It's not cheap. Expect to pay 60–80 euros for a three course meal without wine. On the other hand, the experience is wonderful.
