Classic Italian ripoff. Sit down at a table, order 2 cappuccinos (average should be ~1.3 EUR each) and get slapped in the face with a 7 EUR bill. Yes the view and the atmosphere are nice, but this is just another demonstration of Italian's approach to business: as soon the opportunity presents itself let's screw them as hard as we can - poor stupid tourist doesn't know any better does he? Of course in the short term this works, but after a while (and through forums such as this one) people realize and start avoiding. This may explain why Italy's ratings as a tourist destination have dropped dramatically in recent years compared to other countries (to 5th overall most visited destination). So, unless 3.50 EUR for a cappuccino is normal in your books, stay away from this stinking tourist trap and go look at the view from somewhere else (no shortage of these in Montepulciano).
