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!

After visiting Marquette, my son and I decided to visit Glorioso’s. Being from NY, we have high standards when it comes to Italian fare, stores, markets, etc. Truth be told, Glorioso’s stood up to most of them, and the friendly service was quite endearing. From what I understand, there are not many options for Italian food in the area, so those seeking home-style Italian cooking and an abundant selection of jarred sauces, oils, vinegar, pastas, cheeses, etc., this is a solid choice.

The goods in this authentic grocery/deli were reminicent of more dense Italian-American cities as exist on the East coast. The sandwich and pasta selections for lunch on the spot are worth a visit.
Keep in mind the only tables are outside which on the day I was there were perfect, but in bad weather you will have to take the food to go.
One glitch, especially for those in a hurry, is the preparation time: LONG.

I was born in Italy and have traveled all over the country looking for authentic Italian food. With the exception of Eataly in New York City, this is has the best selection. Family owned and very hospitable. Their made to order deli sandwiches are to die for!

Been going here for years - love the store, the people, and definitely the food. BEST sauce and sausage ever - great salads & awesome bread/breadsticks. Great Little Italy area.

We searched out Glorioso’s based on the many positive comments of our fellow reviewers and we were very pleased with the experience. Glorioso’s is not a full service Italian restaurant, but it a REALLY good deli offering a variety of sandwiches, pasta dishes, salads and desserts. Everything we ordered was made fresh and was excellent. Prices are reasonable and portions are large, especially with the sandwiches so you may consider splitting one. The Italian market has it all, if we were not road tripping we would have loaded up.
