Fodor's Expert Review Joia

$$$$ Porta Venezia Vegetarian Fodor's Choice

At this hushed, haute-cuisine vegetarian haven near Piazza della Repubblica, delicious dishes—all without eggs and many without flour—are served a minimalist beige room that puts the focus solely on the artistry of the food. Vegetarians, who often get short shrift in Italy, will marvel at the variety of culinary offerings, best experienced with one of the interesting tasting menus offered at both lunch (more affordable) and dinner. The ever-changing dishes here are presented in unusual formats: tiny glasses of creamed vegetables or ravioli in the shape of a human hand.
