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.

Located along the "corso," this landmark restaurant features a beautiful view of the Tuscan hills and valleys below -- both in warm and cool weather (it is enclosed with heaters in the cold weather). Our waiter was fluent in English and understood food and related sensibilities, making excellent suggestions along the course of the meal. A nice find!

Really, Caffe Politziano is a must on a visit to Montepulciano. Whether a quick espresso at the bar, or seated for a coffee with friends or family at a table with views of the Val di Chiana below, this place exudes old world charm in its ambiance, furnishings and the service and menu. Try the canoli with your cappuccino!

Truly a great spot!

this place is nice for just a coffee break and even better for lunch. The view fits the very reason to visit this town. the parisian belle epoque kind of decoration is also charming.
