Let's start with the view. Ate on the terrace looking at lake trasimeno in the middle distance and the wineries in between down the hill. One of the best views from Montepulciano. Caters for gluten free diets and all items listed for allergies in the...More

All the restaurants were closed and this place still was serving people, their hospitality was good but the food was ordinary! But we tried to enjoy ourselves!!!

Caffe Poliziano is an historical building that breathes the athmosphere of Art Nouveau. Pop in for some type of coffee and cake, or even for lunch. Great view from the balcony, and kind service too!

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.
