Nice place, but not so tradicional in that place. Looks like old big european coffes. Prices is a bit high. Coffee, cakes and service are awerage. Nothing worth repeating.

The Poliziano is a classic art nouveau cafe, beautifully designed and furnished, with excellent food and drink. Its balcony has a fine view of the countryside.

A friend and I stumbled upon this place upon arriving in Montepulciano and wished we had more time to spend on the terrace with those views. An elegant cafe/ restaurant with fantastic sweet treats and coffee! Highly recommend a visit.

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.
