Who We Are
Family legend has it that 13-year-old Artillio Conti walked from Bardi, in northern Italy, to South Wales, in search of a better life as his country’s economy collapsed.
And as with all the best legends the family is a little hazy on the detail of how a 13-year-old managed to make a 1,000-mile or so journey to Wales.
Artillio, known as Arthur, would work for Italian cafe owners the Bracchis after his 1903 arrival in Penydarren, before the First World War saw him return to Italy to fight.
As a naturalised British subject, when the war ended he would return and open cafes across South and West Wales as part of an Italian influx that by the end of the 19th century had seen around 1,000 settle here.
Marino and Irene Conti opened Conti's Fish & Chip Bar in 1955, which has since been run by Louis Conti.
Louis expanded the business in 1997 when Conti's Express Cafe Bar opened in neighbouring premises.
We are excited to see what the future might bring for Conti's.
