Description: Glorioso’s Italian Market is a family-owned business located on Brady...
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!

Outstanding market to shop. Everything is very fresh. I buy Gloriosos's bread crumbs to use when I make my Spidinis. They have a great Deli sandwich with the freshest meats, cheeses, lettuce, tomatoes and bread. Delicious bakery! Friendly store with great associates.

My favorite item on Glorioso's menu is the Italian beef sandwich. It's also conveniently located on Brady St.

I'm a sucker for good Italian deli food. This isn't just good, it's great! The whole deli and grocery store has a wonderful vibe. It's impossible to walk out of here without buying something. Everything I've tried from the deli has been delicious. If you love to cook Italian food, this is the place to procure the right ingredients. They... More

I'm sitting here, still savoring the memory of the homemade meatball I had for lunch. Glorioso's is a treasure trove of expected (dried/frozen/fresh pastas of all sorts, frozen pizza dough, olive oils, cheeses galore, extensive and wonderful deli) and unusual food offerings (fresh buffalo mozzarella--and on sale, too! homemade octopus salad, the aforementioned fabulous meatballs, arancini and you name it)...

Great place for lunch, reasonably priced menu. Excellent place for shopping when hosting dinner party, deli and cheese selection is one of the best in the city.
