Description: The Caprice is a family run restaurant in the historical town of Musselburgh. We specialise in a Italian Swiss cuisine, with almost 50 years experience. We have original wood-fired ovens to give the pizzas that extra taste of quality and originality. Each pizza is treated with special care. Even to the wood we use, Scottish Pine, is chosen because it adds the required flavour which lets you know you are enjoying a genuine freshly baked pizza.

The Spaghetti Bolognese my other half ordered was pale and look sad i n colour, tghe pasta and... More

Friendly staff. Limited menu for the lunch offer and some of the items were sold out. Food was tasty and good value for money

We regularly order a pizza from caprice and the macaroni but the delivery time can vary up to an hour plus! They need more drivers. Lovely food though and very authentic

The lunch was a reasonable price, but the price for 2 soft drinks ( 1 coke, 1 soda&lime ) at £5.20 I think was a bit scandalous. If this is a way of making their money after cheap lunches, then I think this is a bit over the top. Do not think we will be back.

We were greeted by a dead pan faced young lady who looked as though she wished she were home rather than working. Food was delivered fast but the pizza was burnt at the edges and slightly underneath and was tasteless. It all needs improving before we would return.

We have never eaten in Musselburgh before, but looking for something local to avoid travelling into Edinburgh, we settled on The Caprice, a smallish family-run Italian restaurant right in the heart of the town. There is a convenient car park at the rear of the restaurant. We have eaten in Italian restaurants all over Britain and abroad and are often... More

Being one my local restaurants I'm a regular diner with family and friends. The menu, although very traditional, may seem a little dated by some diners but I think the owners have sensibly found what local tastes like - and why change the menu if it isn't broken? The pizzas are always a hit for me and I enjoy the... More
