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 ate here for dinner, and had: a cheese calzone, a margarita flatbread, and a steak sandwich. The calzone was amazing! Compared to cheesecake factory calzone...can't even compare really. All other calzones I've had are carboard compared to this fresh delicious Italian calzone. The flatbread and steak sandwich were both delicious and fresh as well. Service ALSO was super nice.

I was told I had to have the Italian Beef sandwich and now I’ve crossed it off my bucket list. Huge sandwich and very good. Lovely market there. I’ll be back when I’m in Milwaukee again.

Wonderful selections. Great assistance on floor and suggestions from staff. Check out gal was crabby and seemed upset that I negotiated 10% off with the floor manager. But this store with all the classic Italian fare and generally wonderful service is worth the 100+ mile drive alone. Prices steep but that’s specialty / found my favorite stuff there that usually only locate in NYC. In Milwaukee - a must to stop by - cool neighborhood also.

We had the Sicilian salad with chicken and the brown butter Gnocchi. It was fantastic. The salad looked a little heavy on the vinaigrette but the flavors were perfectly balanced, the gnocchi was to die for, both had large servings that were easily shared.
The grocery store part was beautiful, vibrant and a lot fun to wander through while your food was prepared. The service was prompt and friendly.
The desserts were truly the icing on the over stuffed cannoli that we enjoyed after the meal!!
This is a must stop every time!!
