For generations visitors and local residents have been able to enjoy a glorious view of the Valdichiana Valley from its balconies and the restaurant terrace. Distinguished guests have included Carducci, Pirandello, Prezzolini, Malaparte, Mario del Monaco, Giulietta Masina, Mario Monicelli, Marina Doria di Savoia, Enrico Rava, Mauro Bolognini, Giorgio Batistelli, Franca Valeri, Grazia Galante, Gianluigi Trovesi, Maurizio Giammarco, Danijel Zezeli, Milo Manara...
In 1992 the Cafè was lovingly restored to its former glory. Over the years it become a perfect setting for different cultural activities. Federico Fellini, who visited the "Poliziano" soon after, considered the atmosphere and style to be worthy of any great Central European city.
