    Factthat u had just one choice - tasting Menu and aboslutely no other option is not palatable. Many dishes is. tasting menu was far far from my desired taste. So thats it how can i go. there again. I prefer to eat dishes which i really enjoy to eat. Just for experiencing it , well have done that.

    Ordered the 15 course Zenith menu and non-alcoholic pairing (made in-house and love the unique flavours offered!). Chef Pietro himself personally took our orders including catering for special dietary requirements. Each course was beautifully laid out and tasted amazing. Loved the interaction of food served by the friendly waiters which put big smiles all night. Will definitely come back again!

    Definitely a unique experience, but slightly disappointed given the price/hype. About half of the full tasting menu was spectacular, creative, and warranted a Michelin star. The other half was bland and lackluster. The ambiance was uncomfortably quiet and it felt as if you could not have a conversation without disturbing the other diners. At times I felt I was at a Zen retreat rather than a restaurant on a Saturday night. Service was of course wonderful. Overall, a little bit of an inconsistent experience, but glad to have tried it.

    The food at Joia was excellent. It wasn’t my first time- I have been there many times over the past 25 years. The flavors are exquisite though the portions are minuscule. Because they are so exquisite, it would be really wonderful if they could leave a card with what is in each dish because the waiters serve them and rattle off a long list of ingredients in 5 seconds which is easily forgotten. By the same token I felt the staff was young and aloof. And extremely slow. I don’t want a rushed dinner but I also don’t want one where it takes 1 minute to eat and 20 minutes to wait for the next course. Also I felt that it was more a vegan restaurant than a vegetarian one…

    The food was all beautiful, creative, and delicious. The whole experience was amazing, from the service to the decor/ambiance, wine pairings and of course, the food. Everything was above expectations - it was a perfect end to our week in MIlan.

    As the chef himself explained to us, it's a celebration, a mystical experience. Every dish has a hidden surprise, a twist that transforms it. It's like traveling from Japan to Italy to Lebanon, all with a single dish. And then you're back again and a new trip starts.

    We were really excited for this restaurant. Being vegan for ten years this evening was meant to be the highlight of our Milan vacation. It was a lovely evening. The food looked amazing but in our opinion was not tasty, we came out of it disappointed, I’m afraid I would not recommend.

    It was an exceptional experience from the moment I walked in to the door. The service and attention to detail is stellar. The food and accompanying wine pairings are delicious. The space is beautiful. Grazie, Joia for a special night - one that I will not soon forget!

    Very good restaurant with high quality food, amaizing wines. For such a food and service price is very good (could be more expensive) :) We aren’t vegan, but visited this place with pleasure.

    One of top 5 Best vegan restaurants in the world, in my opinion. And we’ve been vegan for past 56 years, have tried vegan restaurants in most large cities on 5 continents. Incredibly creative and tasty beyond anything we’ve tried.
