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!

The best Italian grocery for any traditional and speciality Itailian ingredients. We always go in with a list and end up with 3-4 additional items.

I love shopping here. When you aren't sure what to try, ask anyone who works here. They are experts on all things Italian. Grab a coffee and use the free Wifi. You'll feel like you're in Italy.

Have been coming here since I was a child. It just keeps getting better and better. My husband and I have a set list of things we purchase...cheese, bread/rolls, grilled Italian sausage, cookies, pasta sauce, and our favorite Roman salad from the deli. We were discussing it at dinner with friends one night drooling about the large green olives, meats,... More

Always enjoy a trip to Glorioso's. Whether you're looking for some amazing bakery or that 1 ingredient you need for an Italian dish they have. Great selection of noodles, bakery, tomatoes, and sauces. Can't speak more highly of this store.

Love stopping in to get a hot sandwich from the deli. Great selection of salads, olives, and other authentic italian fare. Also, I dig the selection in the liquor area.

Waiting for a flight and went to lunch here. Had a great deli sandwich with salami and pepperoni plus provolone cheese and it was outstanding. The girls had an Italian beef and it was yummy. A real nice place and I can see why it is rated #1 in Milwaukee!

This place is a fat kid's heaven. There's fresh hot pasta & an amazing deli section full of your typical and atypical goods such a potato salad, arancinis, and octopus, a bakery with delish Italian pastries, and good gelato- with some funky flavors, like Rose and Champagne. Screw flowers and chocolate, pick up a pint of that for your love.... More

Great place to pick up dinner, sandwich for lunch, wine, cheese, etc. Love their freshly made pizzas. My husband could eat one twice/three times a week. Very helpful staff.
