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!

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.

Glorioso's is just one of those places that will always have a soft spot in my heart. The Glorioso's family are seriously the type of family that create an environment in their space that allows you to feel like your a long lost cousin or something like that. Everyone is fantastic. Having a European background & not being in my own home town eating Nonna's meals on a sunday has been quite hard to adapt too, however having this beautiful deli up the road is like having Nonna around the corner. There have been many a time I needed some home love & have walked down to Glorioso's to be greeted with big smiles & hugs. & the food, is fantastic. The range of deli products & the freshest meats & deli products I have ever encountered, as well as fantastically knowledgeable staff members. LOVE Glorioso's so so so so so much! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!! :D

My husband and I stop In here just to look around. We found that their deli was just amazing, I was able to find the great Sicilian food that I had when I lived over there. We will continue to go there and tell our friends about this place.

We stopped here for lunch while visiting family and we weren't disappointed. The deli within this market is wonderful with both cold and hot meal choices. The portions are enough for two and the prices were great. While waiting for our food we were able to shop the market for some sauces to take home with us.
