“The Bomb”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2013

Brady Street is the bomb. You just can't imagine the experience. You have to go there. Your first stop is Gloriosos. Shop Italian food til you drop. Then stop into Shortinos for bread and dessertrs. If you find a better canolie let me know. The smells of the whole street will drive you wild.

“Great little neighborhood”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2013

Brady Street has life and fun and funk. It is walkable and you will always see something interesting. The bars and restaurants will not disappoint, and Glorioso's and Scortini's will help you get your Italian fix. The west end of the street still needs development and more business, but it has improved as well. The Casablanca restaurant is now like a small palace. If you are staying downtown, head a few blocks north to Brady for a better time.

“Wish there were more Italian things”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2013

We like Brady Street for Gloriosos and Scortinos. Lots of younger East siders who like eclectic things. As a fourty something I only go if I need an Italian fix.

Brady Street is an awesome Milwaukee neighborhood. It has a fantastic vibe and is very eclectic. The street is packed with high quality local restaurants, taverns, and shops. Great area to live or visit.

“I'm Too Old”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 18, 2012

to appreciate Brady Street. We've been to a couple of restaurants but parking is impossible and traffic is beyond belief on the weekends. I'd love to check out the Italian grocery but probably need to do so between 9-10 a.m. on a weekday. We did get a great futon there, our guests even like it! It's a cool place but we don't go bar-hopping or clubbing so we haven't gotten the full effect.
