Good food, and very good wine. We had coffee in their cafe, on one occassion, and dinner in the downstairs restaurant. Both the cafe and restaurant were reasonably priced. Service was outstanding.

This place is beautifully furnished in art deco style and offers a taste of that opulent period. There's a tiny balcony with stunning view of the city and surrounding countryside. Cretainly worth 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.
