What yummy food! This market is a must stop. They have it all! Staff was super friendly and great recommendations. Loved everything we had and also bought. The fresh noodles with pasta sauce was great. The giant meatballs were so good, we went back in for more. The rice balls were soooo good, they are extremely difficult to find and... More

I am obsessed with this place, from the coffee to the sandwiches to the pasta and risotto. Never doing any other sandwich place.

After lunching at the empanada restaurant on Brady St, we had a craving for Cannolis and the local bakery had just closed for the day ---- so we ended up at Glorioso's. Good move --- They sell 2 different types of cannolis, and they prepare them fresh while you watch. They were perfect. I'm kind of glad that Gloriso's is... More

Everything from pasta to cannoli...love this place. A great place to pick up all you need to prepare a feast, or grab something to eat here. Don't miss the olive salad!

The real deal. Think Italy meets Milwaukee. They've offered authentic Italian products for years, on a great street and in a comfortable location.

I had dinner here on a Thursday night, I ordered the Italian sausage sandwich which was terrific my friends all ordered something different and every person at the table raved about their food. The service was really good, the staff behind the deli counter asked me at least five times if they could help me, show me something or if... More

My husband and I came here for lunch on a recent visit to Milwaukee. I'm Italian so markets and places like Glorioso's immediately draw comparisons from my upbringing. First, I wish I could have spent more time here and brought a multitude of goodies (fresh and otherwise) home with me. The market is a feast for the senses and the... More

This was recommended to us by a friend and we found it quite easily, parked up and had a lovely time purchasing our food and drink which we ate at the tables outside. Everything tasted great.

I've been going here for years, and as others have said it's a Milwaukee East Side fixture. I miss the old place which was very charming and old world; the sandwiches have suffered since then too. I got a sausage sandwich a couple weeks ago.....lots of bread and no meat, peppers or sauce. Very "assembly line" now. I now go... More

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!
