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.

My wife and I ate here recently as part of a 17 strong party for a birthday celebration. We were at a large table upstairs which was perfect as only one other small party were in the room. Before I mention the food I must congratulate the waitress who was in attendance all night. Although she had help with the... More

I moved to Musselburgh recently, my neighbours told me the Caprice was excellent. Well I guess we caught them on a bad night. Order was taken promptly by a friendly waitress, food took quite a long time to arrive. I think I was unlucky, others in my party enjoyed their food. My prawn tagliatelle dish was over cooked, squeezed into... More

Visited with friends on Easter Monday so the restaurant was busy! I always like the food at the Caprice. Quality pizzas although the chicken is cut into little cubes and I think using non processed meat would be better! I always go for half and half with various pizza and past options! Reasonably prices and although the service was slow,the... More

We were staying in Musselburgh for the Easter Races and went out for a meal. We came across the 'Caprice' by accident. My husband does not like pasta so was reluctant to go inside. We ordered from the Monday - Thursday special offer 3 course menu. The starters were delicious, as were the mains and the desserts were to die... More

Me and my husband went for a rare night out without our daughter, cosy atmosphere, food was excellent and good drinks choice. The only downside i could see was there would be no room for buggies so wouldnt be able to bring my 1 yr od daughter or throughout the day with friends

Was really looking forward to our trip to the Caprice having heard so much about it and being fairly local. I ordered a 'Vulcano' pizza, menu stated it included chicken and jalapeno peppers and was hot/spicy. Nothing could be further from the truth, 1/2cm squares of chicken pieces strewn about and not a chilli in sight, except for some 'flakes'... More
