Enjoyed dinner and a great bottle of Nobile de Montepulciano with a wonderful view of the Val di Chiana. Service warm and friendly.

Incredible old stately place across from our B&B. Dark wood interior serves up memories of a bygone era from a century ago. Lovely views from the small balcony where we enjoyed fresh pastries and coffee.

The Caffe was recommended to us by people we met while traveling but we were disappointed. It seems to cater to tourists who aren't familiar with the many hidden gems in this, my favorite Italian town. I would opt for one of the smaller restaurants...More

This beautifully located Caffe is a wonderful place to stop for a great lunch or dinner, or just to have a cafe and dolci while shopping.

If you like some nostalgic café with a panoramic balcony enjoying some nice cakes then you should visit the Caffe Poliziano.

It is vintage style cafe/restaurant. We stopped by for coffee and desert. In such an old town this kind of restaurant I would expect real delicious desserts. Maybe just for the view and espresso thats all I can recommend.

Caffè Poliziano Historical Place of Italy.This spacious and elegant Caffè in the historical centre of Montepulciano is a fine example of Art Nouveau design. For generations visitors and local residents have been able to enjoi a glorious view of of the Valdichiana from the balcony. Distinguished guests have included Carducci, Pirandello, Prezzolini, Malaparte, Mario del Monaco, Giulietta Masina,Ornella Muti,, Mario monicelli, Marina Doria di Savoia, Enrico Rava, Mauro Bolognini, Giorgio Battistelli, Licia Colò.... In 1992 the Caffè was lovingly restored to its former glory. Federico Fellini, who visited the "Poliziano" soon after, considered the atmosphere and style to be worthy of a great Central European city such as Vienna or Prague.
