Wheelchair Accessibility Comments

  • This excellent Italian restaurant is located in the world famous Copacabana Palace Hotel over looking the hotel’s beautiful pool.
  • I’d certainly recommend a visit to the hotel and restaurant because they are spectacular historic landmarks and absolutely beautiful.
  • They have gone to great lengths (and expense) to make both the hotel and restaurant fully wheelchair accessible including large accessible restrooms.
  • WARNING: However to navigate from the front hotel entrance on Atlantic Avenue to the Cipriana dining room, there are 3-4 small hydraulic lifts – all modern and well maintained without the need for special keys for operation. The hotel had someone lead the way throughout which was quite helpful. I would have had a difficult time by myself navigating the maze of hallways.
  • That said, the food, service and ambience cannot be beat!
  • The entire staff is extremely gracious and well trained in providing complete assistance to wheelchair travelers.
