Wheelchair Jimmy Accessibility Comments

We had a marvelous dinner with friends at Andino’s in October 2018 during our drive around New England, but wheelchair accessibility is a challenge.

I called in advance and when I arrived they had already placed a solid temporary ramp at the front door to avoid the 1 step. Yeah! Andino’s is a small Italian restaurant so seating is tight but there are several reasonably accessible tables.

WARNING: The men’s bathroom is up 3 steps and is not accessible. I used the women’s bathroom which was barely accessible for my 22 1/2 inch manual chair. There was a 24 inch passage to thewomen’s toilet and no ability for the wheelchair to turn around.

That said, I loved the atmosphere, food and service at Andino’s.  We had a wonderful evening and another great memory! It’s one of my new Favorites, but it still receives a WJAR 1 rating due mainly to the lack of a reasonably accessible restroom.
