    Italian restaurants in Cardiff have a long history

    You may be surprised to know that Wales has a long history of Italian immigration, with many families welcomed in waves between the 19th and early 20th centuries. Around 1,000 Italian immigrants – many of whom were political refugees – had come to Wales by the end of the 19th century, and they mostly worked as seamen in the port towns. Some of them also set up cafes, fish and chip shops, ice-cream parlours and Italian restaurants in Cardiff and all around Wales. For years, Italian cafes were typically known as 'Bracchis' by the locals – referring to the Bracchi family who owned a cafe in Rhondda. You may still hear the term today!
