From recollection I would say access is ok. You will need to check with restaurant on toilet facilities.

Description
Sapori is an authentic Italian family restaurant run with passion and pride! Everything is homemade from the bread to our desserts and ice-creams...This makes the difference and for the quality of food we provide we offer great value for money and it is very disappointing that not everyone understands this nowadays. We believe in what we are doing and we will carry on offering the same great quality of food. We built a great reputation since opened in May 2011 but unfortunately there are dishonest and miserable people and competitors around so please be aware of this when reading through the reviews. Grazie mille. We look forward to welcoming you at Sapori soon. Ciao
