From the outside Caffe Poliziano has always looked a bit fancy to me, but I've also been drawn to the place because of the view overlooking the breathtaking landscape sorrounding Montepulciano. We stopped in for a late and somehow fast dinner. The service was excellent!...More

Busy little place, very characteristic and charming. picked a little table outside with a view, staff a little pushy and no personal approach but suppose this is the problem with being a tourist town. Its not cheap hear but the food is not bad. Noticed...More

I'm giving this restaurant average for their food, it was nothing special. But the views are fantastic and the atmosphere is lovely. We didn't have many options visiting in March, but this place was open. The service was very attentive.

Poor tasting coffee and old croissants they called brioche and dry toast. Also they claimed the eftpos machine didn't work and that they only accept cash

Amazing view, lovely staff, tight service, simple and delicious food. The hand-made pasta was light and very enjoyable, the different sauces we tried were fabulous, and our daughter said the lasagna Bolognese was the best she's had in her life.

Caffe Poliziano is a magnificent art nouveau café, worth to visit and drink something in a historic setting, avoid to eat, dogfood is served.

The morning espresso or the afternoon cappuccino enjoying the Val di Chiana-view or the "aperitivo" before dinner (same view of course). The historic Caffe Poliziano deserves its place on my places to visit list in Montepulciano. Beautiful interior, professional service personnel, delicious "dolci", ... I...More

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.
