Description: 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.

“Nice Poliziano”
Reviewed June 10, 2014

The name suggests a different look, it is a romantic place with good service and delicious drinks. The view from the very small balcony is only available very early in the morning or if you are extremely lucky during the day.
We had a nice tea and delicious torte.

the price is not extremely friendly but acceptable for what you get

“Elegant Charm”
Reviewed June 10, 2014

The first thing you notice about Caffe Poliziano is the room - elegant, traditional, classy. A beautiful caffe set into the east facing side of Montepulciano, with 2 small balconies offering outside tables with amazing vistas.
I only frequented Poliziano for my daily intake of cappuccino, but that daily visit was every day for 4 weeks!!! The staff are friendly and efficient, and happy to interact despite my terrible attempts at speaking Italian.
It's a very pleasant environment to sit and sip your drink of choice, at any time of the day or night. They also offer free wifi :-)

“lunch on the terasse”
Reviewed June 5, 2014

this is nice caffe in Montepulciano, with the history. if you are super lucky (as we were), you can have the lunch or coffee on the terasse. why lucky? there is only one table! there is beautiful view from there and as the waiter can come only through the door, you feel special.
food there is fine - nothing extraordinary, but still good Italian quality. do not expect low prices - this is famous caffe.

“Good food, a very good view”
Reviewed May 10, 2014 via mobile

We had very easy food. Just salad and antipasto but they were good and very fresh. The service was friendly and efficient. We sat on the small terrace and the view was breath taking. I'd go back again for lunch.
