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!

This place is amazing! You can feel the authenticity as soon as you walk through the front doors. The cases are overflowing with the most beautiful pastries and Italian goods. We ordered a couple of sandwiches and they were so delicious and what a bargain. Definitely worth a visit!

I would highly recommend this store. Bakery, deli, meats, groceries and liquor. Everything Italian. Located downtown Milwaukee on Brady Street. Superb service.

Tour the grocery store, then order something Italian for lunch at the deli counter. Freshly made pizzas, salads, etc. Very friendly staff and customers. My visit made me feel like I lived in the neighborhood.

Sandwiches are better then those in Italy so far as I'm concerned. All fresh ingredients, plenty of variety, made to order, and tasty good. The shop is a small grocer with deli, meat, and bakery counter.

Looking for hard to find Italian cheeses? Try here if the don't have it they can probably get it.

I enjoyed the outside seating. Plenty to go around. The old crabby Italians sitting on the corner is right out of a picture. Be sure to smile or nod when passing by.
