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!

There is limited seating for a deli-style meal, but the true reason you go to Glorioso's is for the experience. It is the best place I have found to purchase specialty foods, pasta, spice, oils and deli items. It is on Brady Street which is an old world Milwaukee destination for a walk.

Glorioso's is the best place to find any Italian specialty foods, cookware and wine. The deli and prepared foods are fantastic, the assortment amazing and overall a delightful shopping and eating experience.

I made my annual HOLIDAY trip to the east side to visit Gloriosos. Here's the deal, if you are in Milwaukee for the Christmas holidays, bring a cooler , GO STRAIGHT to Glorioso's on BRADY and BUY a carload of their CHRISTMAS SAUSAGE. It is outrageously delicious! Wish I and bought more than 10 lbs to freeze!

Glorioso's is great whether you're shopping for a recipe, in the market for pastries or just want a meatball sub. The newest location has space and lighting to highlight all sorts of Italian delicacies. They've got a few tables to sit and enjoy a cannoli with your espresso too. A fine selection of pastas, wines, delicatessen meats, prepared food and... More

If you are looking for Italian ingredients, this is the best place to go. While you are there, get a great sandwich (prosciutto and provolone with hot gardinera, my favorite), pick up some great sauce and pasta too.

If you're into making your own pizza, this place has all the ingredients! They also have excellent homemade desserts. Love their tiramisu!

Gloriosos has some of the best sandwiches, paninis and subs in Milwaukee. I love the mild muffaletta that they put on their sandwiches. Save room for one of their salted caramel pretzel brownies - to die for.

This place has a very homie feel to it as a family business. Their meats, cheeses, and wine are fun to shop for here. This is also one of my favorite spots for lunch with their meatball sub. This is a Milwaukee staple for me!

This grocery was opened by the Glorioso brothers years ago and the entire family continues to run it. Even though they are in a new location you still see the same people day in and day out. Same great food too. This type of place is all that is good in Milwaukee. Excellent deli... you can't go wrong, but I... More
