Description: Glorioso’s Italian Market is a family-owned business located on Brady Street since 1946. Purveyors of old-world Italian specialties in the heart of Milwaukee's East Side. Fresh, handmade sausages, mouthwatering deli creations and piping hot pizza are just a few of our specialties. Browse our aisles of cheese, wine and pasta. Linger over the amazing selection of olive oils, fresh and frozen pastas, and delicious bakery creations. With a vast array of olives, cheeses, wines, imported meats and delectable sandwiches, along with pastries, cookies, and gelato, Glorioso’s is the perfect stop for a great meal.Glorioso’s has been tantalizing the public’s taste buds with rare Mediterranean treats for over 6 decades. Upon stepping over the threshold, you can see that, four generations later, this is one store that has kept its old world charm. As you walk through the store, you will see family photos scattered throughout. If you stay long enough, you’re bound to run into Joe, Ted or Eddie, the founding brothers, ready to fill you in on the history behind each photograph: from pictures when they got out of the service in WWII, to the first truck they bought for the store, to the TV commercials that feature cameos of two more family members.But if the looks alone aren’t enough, just inhale deeply and you will catch the aroma of one of the many secret family recipes wafting from the back deli. It could be Nonno Felice’s sausage recipe, made fresh daily. Or it could be the house marinara sauce simmering on the stove. Or the Trio’s pizza baking to perfection in the oven.Glorioso’s won the award for Small Business of the Year in 2007, and has had numerous articles written about us in the Milwaukee Journal and the Shepherd Express. We won “Milwaukee’s Best Deli - 2011" from OnMilwaukee and our new store has received several awards for its innovative design. Bring the family over, we'd love to meet you!

We chose Glorioso's because of its high rating on TripAdvisor. We were not disappointed. We had our food delivered to our hotel in a very timely fashion. There were eight of us dining and we enjoyed the large meatball sub on the most incredible bread ever. We had chopped salads, fettuccine Alfredo with chicken, Italian beef and Italian sausage.

Stopped in a few times while in the area. Nice, clean shop and deli in an area that still has many not-so-clean stores. Not exactly a restaurant, but lots of great food that you can take out and eat. Recognized some items from other stores that were wildly overpriced here, but they also had many nice homemade items and new... More

A well stocked Italian market. Not huge, but a large enough selection of wine, groceries, coffee, prepared sandwiches and salads that it is hard to leave without a basket of goodies.

Who doesn't love Glorioso's? Great selection of cheeses, pasta, cured meats, prepared foods, wine and more. This is an example of places that make Milwaukee great.

I stopped here with a friend to check out the deli and pick up some food for dinner. We purchased a few items from the case that the staff was happy to warm up so that we could eat them right there. A great variety of foods and I was blown away by all the cheese and sausage selections!

I understand that Glorioso's is rated #3 in Milwaukee. It deserves it. BUT IT IS NOT A RESTAURANT. Repeat, it is not a restaurant. It's an Italian grocery store that happens to have a few tables and serve outstanding food. Know that and you wont be disappointed. The concept is simple. Order pasta, pizza, stromboli or a sandwich (I ordered... More

The store itself is fun to walk around in while waiting for food order with lots of good Italian items. The cheese selection was outstanding - and the deli salads/ and foods looked delicious. We only ordered sandwiches though--- my husband... More

Every time I visit Milwaukee, I make sure to stop by this neighborhood market. There is nothing else quite like this place! I go to do some light shopping (beer, wine, Italian foods, etc.) and stay for lunch. To me, what really sets this place apart is the quality of the food and the service I receive. The staff goes...

This is neighborhood market with an old-school Italian vibe. Correspondingly the have great pizzas (which is what i had) and you can also get salads and all kinds of other snacks, desserts, etc. The staff in each department were super friendly. Don't expect a 5 star environment. This is a very simple spot. If you need a good lunch or... More
