Full service restaurant with private banquet room that can seat up to 100 guests. We are open 7 days a week and the private room is open for Wedding rehearsals, Birthdays, Anniversary Parties, Corporate Events, etc. we have a nice wine and beer list and all our food is scratch made .
Great service and good wine. A lot of care goes in to presenting an authentic Italian dish with the highest quality ingredients!
We have had some joyful, delicious meals here! Last night, my wife and I celebrated our 30th anniversary at Valeria. Our meal started with an Insalata di mer with scallops shrimp and mussels in herbs and olive oil. Wonderful! For our main course, my wife had the Dore style cod adapted to her food allergies and I had the Melanzine alla Parmigiana. Everything fresh and perfectly cooked. There is an extensive wine list here. The atmosphere was completed by a talented Spanish style guitarist. More...
Wow, what a pleasant surprise. Our first trip tonight for our anniversary and it will not be our last! We all enjoyed our meals the cod, flounder, eggplant and crab cakes. Great appetizers and desserts! Vino was excellent as well! Can't wait to go back!!! More...
A wonderful hidden gem in Boerne! The quail was full of flavor and cooked to perfection. The atmosphere is perfect, great live music,and a wine list for every taste.
Bravo! Casual atmosphere with first class service. The quail is the star of the menu, beautifully presented and prepared with a bouquet of flavor. Endive salad is superb.
First class service. Wonderful challenging menu.Will definitely come back
A serenpitious find when traveling.

The Copper River Salmon was delicious, but an extremely small portion for the money. Same with the stuffed Valeria chicken drumstick and thigh. No salad or vegetable came with the meals, only minimal condiments to enhance the main entree. Not worth the $100 we paid for our meal.Music from the Sinatra era was delightful. The paper tablecloth was annoying and ruined the ambiance of an upscale restaurant. Service was exceptional. Not sure if we will go back. More...
Good food but way over priced.
Very pleasant, wonderful service, excellent food and the atmosphere was the perfect compliment! I thoroughly enjoyed myself!
YUM! such a lovely spot. Really enjoyed our dinner. Great service.
The pizza was probably the best authentic Italian style pizza I've ever had. Look forward to trying other entree's on the menu soon.
My boyfriend and I came to town for a nearby race and went to dinner here the night before. The food was outstanding. I had spaghetti and meatballs and he had some pepperoni pizza. We were both thoroughly impressed with the food. They had a live singer singing Frank Sinatra style songs who was marvelous. The atmosphere was great, service was awesome, and we had a wonderful time. If the race comes back next year to this area, we will certainly be eating here again! More...
Place is the cleanest place I have ever see
We had dinner at 0530 on a Thursday. It was quiet and we didn't need reservations, but I bet you do on the weekend because it is small. The food, Chef Keith, the staff, the ambiance were all amazing! I can't wait to go back. My husband and I both had seafood (appetizers: mussels from Bangs Islnd Maine, and oysters from I forget where) and dinners - and all was supremely fresh. We are spoiled from years of living on Cape Cod with just caught fish, but this was as fresh as anything weve eaten there.)I had the GF Gulf Coast jumbo shrimp with spinach, and the chef made my husuband a linguine with seafood dish that he has been hankering for since we moved to San Antonio 24 years ago. I also had the house salad which had a great olive oil and sherry vinegar dressing, My husband had a glass of Tuscan chardonney (organic, steel finish, not oakd - very clear and light taste). The staff and chef are really friendly and knowledgeable. The atomosphere was quiet. There were classics playing when we first arrived (Loius Armstrong!) and then a flamenco guitarist and percussionist played live music. The music did not overide the ability to hear; It was very easy to chat with my husband, the chef, and the waitstaff. I strongly recommend that you visit More...
This restaurant was amazing! Clean, great atmosphere, reasonably priced, clean restrooms, the staff was professional and knowledgeable. The fresh ingredients allow you to eat Italian without the guilt feel later! I will definitely be back! More...
Just left , thought share my experience, Pizza amazing close enough to an Authentic Napoletano Margherita , and Great service . Will definitely go back , if we are back in town . Servizio Eccellente - Grazie Mille More...
What a pleasant surprise! Located in s boerne tucked behind the Verizon store doors this hidden jewel. The pasta was homemade as was the bread and sauce. Everything we tried was outstanding. It was a slow night by we're weren't "over served", and are extremely happy we found gray Italian food. They also have pizzas, a nice selection of seafood and steak. But we're here for the pasta! More...
This is the best kept secret in Boerne. Fantastic food and service. Great wine list. I will definitely come back. Outside porch is dog friendly. Love it
I was visiting from the Dallas area and ate here with a friend one evening. I had Gulf shrimp on top of spinach and it was delicious! My Cabernet was full-bodied and, the chocolate souffle was phenomenal! A definite plus in my book. More...
The only thing that i can tell the drive was worthed. The tiramisu is to dir for it's a must. I had spaghetti carbonara it was ok. Clean restaurant . The chef make sure that everything was tasty and he came to talked to us . More...
The Italian food was great.
The garlic bread is amazing, I've tried the chicken parmigiana, the baked ziti, and the spaghetti. All were delicious.
Great food! Great service, personable staff, place was impeccably clean and quiet, would highly recommend for authentic, quality, from scratch Italian cuisine!
Timberline Builders' Supply
Quiet late lunch. Food was good, service great. We asked for bruschetta and it wasn't on the menu, but the nice waiter made up a beautiful platter of something close.
Great food, nice owner, clean
5 Stars. Our absolute favorite place to eat.
A lot of great menu choices and very good service
The best farm to table restaurant i've ever been to
We ordered from my town to go and I think the majority of the issues are lack of communication from my town to go regarding unavailable items and substitutions from the restaurant. They failed to include the salad I ordered and was charged for. However, the chef contacted me stating they were out of lettuce due to the recent romaine issues which is understandable. Additionally, turkey was substituted for chicken in my entree and I don't care for turkey so, while not the restaurant's fault completely, if I had known, I would not have ordered this particular dish. However, MyTown2Go failed to inform me of either of these issues resulting in my dissatisfaction with my meal.Update: A full refund was offered. While the food had issues, I updated to 4 stars due to the amazing customer service. Thank you Chef Keith for following up with me. More...
Love Valeria. Great food and wine.
Staff was very welcoming. I love the fact that everything here is fresh! I learned that the owner has his own farm. Valeria Farms. Food was delicious!!!!! Taking my parents here to this quaint little ristorante for their anniversary brunch. More...
Best meatballs i have ever taste. Also, had prime rib : definite will go again and again.
Excellent. Celebrated our anniversary here. Perfect place. Food & service: perfect!
Off night. But executive chef and owner cared enough to make it right and that extra effort goes a ling way. My friends rave about the place including my brother who is a Culinary Institute of America grad. Going to give it another try.We all have an off day More...
Ruby Alejandra Duran
Their food is amazing! Once you taste it, you understand what "fresh" is. They have a nice wine selection and the service is high quality. The prices are a little on the high end, but you get what you pay for and it is completely worth every penny. More...
We had a wonderful time. Moses was our server and he went above and beyond to make sure we enjoyed our dinner. He helped us with ordering off menu and we got a great alfredo. Dessert was amazing and my cappuccino was spot-on. We will definitely be going again. More...
great food and service! Our server Moses was amazing, and the hostess Lauren was very sweet
Jo Anna Gutierrez
Amazing service. Kinda pricy but beautiful presentation of food.
Had lunch there last Saturday. A few customers there but not crowded. Excellent food. Excellent service. I rarely give five stars but no negatives and no issues. Great place for lunch with the little woman. More...
This place is amazing. The food is very fresh. It is just now a Italiano Food Restaurant, they also have seafood and all of the food they have is just amazing. I am on a special meal plan and they where able to accommodate me and fix me food that I can eat. This place is just amazing and I recommend this place to you ! More...
Absolutely delicious!! Great atmosphere inside and out. There was a guy there that sang songs and you could request him to sing something for you.
Delicious food and amazing service.
Absolutely amazing! Fresh organic food and the friendliest staff. For sure a hidden gem. Definitely recommend.
Having travelled throughout the country and abroad, I always seek out intimate high quality dining experiences and found one here in Boerne, TX years ago and it continues to amaze me. Valeria is attentive to the highest quality of sourced ingredients and modifies the menu to include only the best culinary offerings. Chef Keith Kuhn and his staff - from the hostess to the wait staff - all make the experience perfect And if you happen to catch the love music on Friday and Saturday, it’s a bonus to you culinary dining experience in Boerne. If you’re in San Antonio it’s worth the drive to Boerne and if you’re in the Boerne area, you don’t want to miss dining at Valeria! More...
This is an amazing little jewel South of the expected area. This is fine dining, so don't bring the little ones, but the experience is outstanding. BONUS: unlike out former favorite restaurant in Boerne, this place is actually open on Mondays for lunch! More...
Good food. A bit pricey though.
Amazing time learning to cook!
Good food and service. Best Italian restaurant in Boerne.
Great food and service. We enjoyed our time.
Very personable staff and unbelievable food. Was very impressed with the quality and authenticity of the food. Italian cuisine that focuses on the magnificent flavors of Italian dining. My new favorite Italian Ristorante! More...
I tried the cod and I can't remember getting a better meal ever. Nice comfortable place to eat. The staff went over and above their duties.
Organic Italian food. Amazing
Good food. A bit pricey but worth it.
Best Italian in Boerne! The staff there knows what they’re talking about. Great wine and food selection.
This was our first visit, the service was great, the entire staff friendly, wine and food were both top shelf. Will definitely be coming back soon to try more of the menu.
My wife had heard rumors of the new restaurant. Typically, when we want fine dining in Boerne, we go to The Creek. Since that place is closed on Mondays, we tried this one. We were not at all disappointed! Their locally sourced food is of both outstanding quality and outstanding preparation. The tiramisu is the best I have ever had, and I'm a 25-year military veteran who has traveled the world. The service by Jacob and Eileen was superb. I can wholeheartedly endorse this fine establishment. More...
A friend and I dined here on Thursday night and it was fantastic. The service was great and the food was delicious. If you haven't been, go!
I visit so many eateries, and some are terrible (fair oaks ranch tavern) and some are outstanding like Valeria.The bread and oil -- yes The salads-yesThe entrees-yesAll fresh ingredients..Prepared beautifully-Great staff... More...
It was interesting experience. Pleasant atmosphere, service was great and attentive. It is pricey to eat here. But food is fantastic and fresh. 4 stars because of the waiting.
Don't pass up the opportunity to eat here! Fantastic fresh food and has a wonderful farm to table menu. Everything is made in house!!!
You have to try this food! The porkchops are amazing. My wife who doesn't usually like pork chops said they were fantastic! Lucky find, magnificent jewel of a restaurant. Will eat here when we are through again! More...
Great staff and food
Best food in Boerne and surrounding areas. Fine dining Farm to Table Italian and more seasonal creative dishes. Bright flavors. Thoughtful service.
A wonderful restaurant and outstanding culinary experience, in a most unlikely place, an obscure strip shopping center in a foodie wasteland known as Boerne.The service, the food, and the wine list are amazing. Seafood Florentine, the gnocchi, the brick oven pizzas, are all highly recommended. Great ambience, and a lovely relaxed feel.I hope La Valeria thrives and is with us for many years. It's going to require the tourist trade on the weekends, and local support during the week. Boerne has failed to support a lot of great venues through the years. I would love to see something, that isn't burgers and CFS, gain a permanent foothold in our little community.Give La Valeria a try. You won't be disappointed.Update: We were recently back on a Sunday night. Only three tables were occupied, served by one waitress. I think the chef was alone in the kitchen. Almost an hour passed between our appetizers and entrees, which arrived at the table lukewarm. Not sure what is going on, but something is amiss. More...
Wow! So glad we finally tried this place! Food was delicious & the service was top notch! We had the meatballs to start & they were very tasty! I went for the Lasagna all Valeria and loved it (not your traditional w/red sauce but I actually preferred this style)! Hubby had the Linguini Pescatore and he enjoyed it. We brought the kids with us and they made a plate of fish nuggets with spaghetti & zucchini for them. Tiramisu was a great ending to a lovely dinner! We will definitely be back! :) More...
One would not expect cuisine of this quality and subtlety in Boerne, Texas, yet here it is. Everything from the bread to the wine list is exemplary, for any restaurant, anywhere. Many thanks to Syl, from St. Tryphon Winery, for the recommendation. More...
We started with the meatballs as an appetizer, they had to have been the best meatballs I've ever had in my life. The lamb wasn't too overpowering in them which I loved. Then I had a pasta, I'm not sure what it's called (very Italian) but it had seared scallops, shrimp and mussels over a white wine tomato sauce it was amazing. The mussels were cooked perfectly and were filled with the delicious white wine sauce. The ambiance is nice and the waitstaff is even better, hilarious I'd even say. It was a perfect night and I can't wait to go back. More...
Wonderful service and food
Outstanding food and service! Great place
Absolutely amazing place. Great food excellent service, good prices! Honestly best submariner sandwich I've ever had.
Great lunch, very unique menu. Changed regularly
Excellent food but pricey expect to pay over $30 on weekends without wine
Excellent cuisine, outstanding service!

I had A dinner special of spaghetti with shellfish that could not have been better! The sauce was freshly made with fresh herbs and garlic, the shellfish were big and fresh, and it had been beautifully plated. The service was excellent, unhurried and gracious. The atmosphere was very pleasant, the place very clean, and it had a perfect selection of unobtrusive music. There is none of the fake chainstore Italian nonsense here, just a very pleasant place to appreciate an excellent meal. More...
Always great food and service. Good live music also.
Interesting experience. I think the brick oven was down for maintenance, so the menu was limited, but still good. We didn't have reservations on a Friday night, they hesitated a bit but got us a table, so get a reservation. Food was good, but maybe not $30 entree good. Service was good after they got by the large party Friday night rush More...
A fantastic lunch and wonderful service.Can't say enough things about our experience.
Knowledgeable wait staff, fresh ingredients, wonderful atmosphere, quiet. Delicious. Great wine selection.
Delicious fresh food made to order!
Loved it as always. This is authentic Italian food the way I remember it.
We are from Houston and came to Boerne TX for a weekend getaway. We came to this restaurant and we didn't expect to get an amazing service. Moses our waiter was amazing! He was patient and attentive and knowledgeable of the menu items. Everything we ordered was great. The food tasted fresh and delicious. We had pizza, key lime tart, chocolate cheesecake and "Mexican cola". Cola is made with organic cane sugar. Also the chef came out and talk to us about the special for tonight and how he is preparing fish. The restaurant also had a talented singer that sounded like Michael Bubble. Overall highly recommend this place. If you aren't form this town this is your place to go!! More...
Great food. Fresh and tasty. The lightest, chicken parmesan ever.
Giving it four stars because service was really slow! It took forever for us to get our meals and there were only 2 other people at the restaurant. But the food was really tasteful, with the wait! We liked it a lot! My husband had Italian crepe which he said was good and I had chicken parmesan which was really really good!!! More...
Amazing all around. This is a great special occasion or date night spot. Their ingredients are very fresh and it is apparent that care is taken with every single detail. The service is impeccable and the facility is clean, simple, and welcoming. I would suggest this restaurant to anyone looking for a perfect dining experience. More...
Can't Stop in Boerne without a visit to this place
The food is delicious. The waiter was courteous and respectful. Be aware that it is pricey to eat here.
Foods incredible and so is the service!
I decided to check this place out for lunch today. It had good ratings on Google and I usually pick 4 star restaurants and above. This is a very nice restaurant with a somewhat formal dining environment. The gentleman that seated and serve me was prompt and courteous. I ordered the veal Francesco which was delicious. Most of the plates that interested me were a little pricey but that is to be expected in a place like this. More...
Food amazing food knowledgeable server great wines.
I'm only going to give 5 stars because I can't give 10. From the impeccable service to the amazing dishes, this place needs to be on the frequent visit list. I don't care if you want the pizza or not, order it. The polpette starter is delicious, the spaghetti all'olio is spicy and nice. Don't forget dessert. More...
Chef Keith Kuhn is a real treasure and very unique to the region. He sources the freshest and most pure products including items from Europe and throughout the world to make incredibly delicious meals. The wine list is outstanding. Boerne is very fortunate to have a restaurant and chef of this caliber. More...
Ali Mae Barton
Very nice place. Really appreciated that it was family owned. A bit pricey, but we'll worth it.
Excellent Great food & service
Service was impeccable and the food was spectacular. We will definitely be back again.
Personable staff, great food, and good portion sizes.
Authentic Italian cuisine. Incredibly fresh ingredients. Unique menu. Not the speediest service. Owner, Keith, is very passionate about the food. We will definitely go back.
Excellent Place. Fantastic food, great service, awesome chef, very good and unique wine list. Our favorite for dinner in Boerne.
Fabulous place!! Excellent food! You know the kind - where EVERY bite is delectable! Great New find for me (even though they have been in business 3 years already!) ♥️
Very nice atmosphere and the food was very good!Enjoyed the time spent with my love!
Incredible dishes, not a place to overfill yourself, but a place of great flavor, freshness, and purely amazing long-term Chefs with style and personality. Expect normal cooking times for extra primo food, More...
The food is wonderful !!! Great wine selection.
Great food, excellent wine. Chef Kent is single handedly elevating fine cuisine in the hill country. Can't wait to go back.
words Cannot describe the flavor that your taste buds will get with any dish that you order. The bone marrow is some of the best that I've had in 5 years.. I strongly suggest ordering the crepes. The desserts are just like my grandmother used to make back in the old country. if there was a option for 6 stars I would have put 6. I'm a foodie and by far this is one of the best five restaurants in San Antonio area. Albert our server was phenomenal More...
Jeffrey Adam Rhines
Chef knows what he's doing. Order a couple glasses of wine from the short list and they won't disappoint. The pork cheek and some olives for an appetizer, pasta with rabbit for main course, and a delicious lemon ricotta cheesecake for dessert. Don't forget an espresso or port to finish the evening and you'll leave a happier person than you entered, glad that people care about the quality of their food and service. More...
Lovely ambiance. Superb wait staff. Excellent dining experience.
The food was absolutely amazing. We got the lasagna and it was made to perfection. The prices were pretty steep but other than that, it was an amazing visit to a very elegant Italian restaurant.
Favorite restaurant in Boerne. Delicious foods and wine with impeccable service. Come for the wine tasting if you have a chance, they are wonderful.
OK this place is amazing. I was skeptical of anything in Boerne advertising itself as "Italian," but i was so wrong! Truly authentic, flavorful and fresh ingredients, a wide array of options (life beyond eggplant parm), and hospitable, sophisticated chef. One of the best meals I've had outside of New York. More...
What a treat! My family and I went to Valeria for the first time today and had Moses as our waiter. Their food is fantastic! The atmosphere is relaxing, even with young children. Moses was extremely nice and accommodating. We started with two appetizers: an Asiago cheese plate and a sautéed mushrooms plate. Both were outstanding! The cheese plate came with little cheese triangles, toasted almonds, strawberries, with fig jam and a balsamic glaze. The mushrooms plate only had mushrooms, but they were spiced to perfection. The kids had a cheese and tomato pizza. They had a pizza menu, and Moses said they could also make smaller dishes for kids.I had a chicken crepe, with cheese, mushrooms, and spinach...and it was delicious!! My husband had butterflied quail with spinach, blue cheese, toasted almonds, and strawberries, with a house vinaigrette.Overall, the food was excellent! It's a bit pricey, but it's well worth eating there every now and then. The owner, Keith, tries to source organically when he cans. He even travels internationally to check out the quality of organic ingredients!! That's dedication, and it shows by the menu. I highly recommend eating here. More...
Terrific lunch today. It was my friend's BD. So I told him we'd do it up right. He has the Italian pot roast lunch special. It came with jasmine rice and some sort of potato. He loved it. I had Shrimp Valeria. You can't go wrong with that dish. Delicately fried large shrimp with the tails removed. How great is that? It too, came with jasmine rice. Also with to die for ribbon zucchini. So delicious. I asked about how it was prepared. The server states that is was salt, garlic and sautéed in olive oil. Ok, I'm being lied to. You just don't want me to really know the secret. It can't be that simple and taste so fabulous. And it is. If U made it, I'm sure it would taste like sautéed rubber slices. We finished by splitting a slice of the Texas chocolate cake with vanilla ice cream. Another winner. Go there. 06/01/17 Went today for lunchI didn't realize they had gone all Italian. I had the lunch combo of shrimp Valeria and fried eggplant, served with jasmine rice and cubed zucchini. A great value and so tasty. Plenty of food: six shrimp and two nice slices of eggplant. My friend had the lunch pork chop, bone-in with a potato side. To me, the potato looked like a lasagna. Pretty yummy all around we also tried the yeast rolls. Hot and sprinkled with some finely grated cheese. Just delicious. The lemonade is made with lemon juice and simple sugar. My friend really likes lemonade and refills were free. Cool. While I do miss some of the original food items that were served in the beginning (awesome fried chicken), today's food was terrific. 03/08/18Went to lunch my buddy. I had the pasta I can't pronounce. Check out the picture of the receipt. Starts with an 'O'. It was covered in a rabbit-based sauce. So good! My friend had Italian meatballs (small) with spaghetti. Both came with a Bibb salad with olives and beets. Yum. Service is always so good here. Every now and then I wish they still served the food they did in the beginning, American. But the Italian is very good, too. More...
Service - 5Food - 5Wine selection - 5Atmosphere- 3If I cared more about atmosphere I'd be knocking it down to a 4, but I really don't. Once I adjusted to the paneling and hung ceiling the rest of the experience took over and I never looked back. The servers were true professionals with a great knowledge of the wines and food. As a vegan I often struggle to find options but this server and chef were happy to accommodate with an off menu pasta primavera that was amazing filled with 7 different veggies. The mushroom sauté as an appetizer was packed with flavor but the simple goodness of the mushrooms was the star of the show.Order more bread for sopping. Just do it!! These guys do farm to table without that being the most important thing. Everything was fresh and simply prepared so ingredients can stand out. We capped the meal with 2 ports because we were stuffed but desserts looked great for our next visit.For Saturday night dates, the crooner entertainment was a great addition bringing a little Sinatra and friends to our experience. More...
First time diners based on Yelp reviews- were very impressed with the various dishes we tried. Loved it all and the service was charismatic, informative , timely and helpful. Would definitely recommend to all !!!!!! More...
Wonderful staff with very good suggestions and descriptions of wine list and menu. Authentic Italian.
Possibly the most delightful dining experience in all of Boerne. Intimate setting with impeccable service. Excellent wines. And the food was delicious and perfectly prepared and served. More...
Wow! Food was delicious. Nice menu choices. We did appetizers, entree and dessert, fabulous! Great wine selection. Great staff. A must visit in Boerne.
We found this small hidden away resturant in Boerne TX. to be a real treat for us. We found the food to be very fresh and very delicious. The wait staff was very accomadating. We will definitely be returning to this quaint spot in the future. More...
A really nice find for dinner- everything is good, from the fresh baked bread in wonderful Greek olive oil, to the Wild Grilled Shrimp, to the Northern Italian lasagna, to the wine...you get the idea. We will be back! More...
It was 51 years ago that I graduated from Le Cordon Bleu in Paris and made my way to Lucca in northern Italy for my first job as a chef. What struck me immediately was the fact that what I considered "Italian" food didn't exist in Italy. Yes, there was spaghetti, pizza and the like but the way the dishes were constructed and the flavors were very different.In the U. S. there's an abundance of sauce and cheese and unfortunately the flavor of the other ingredients fade into oblivion. And many times everything tastes the same--the pizza tastes like baked ziti which tastes like lasagna . . . well, you get the picture. In Italy, each ingredient stands on its own yet compliment the others in the dish. Sauce and cheese, for example, are not sloshed and sprinkled with abandon but are used in moderation and this goes for every other ingredient as well. When done correctly, it's a symphony; when done incorrectly, it's a combination of punk rock, heavy metal and atonalism on steroids. In other words, the senses rebel. I'm happy to report that the food at Valeria Ristorante Italiano is indeed a symphony!With two friends I came for dinner last night. Two of us ordered a pizza with sausage and peppers, the other the chicken parmigiana. Nothing fancy but a lot about a restaurant's quality can be discerned through these two dishes. Excellent bread and olive oil were presented to start the meal. And rather than the usual herbs in the oil, a small container of salt on the side--very common in Italy, more common, in fact, than herbs. If you've never tried it, do so; you'll be pleasantly surprised.The pizza prep area and oven are in full view of the restaurant's dining area and we took the opportunity to wander over to watch the pizza chef work his magic. Use of ingredients was judicious; no drowning the dough (which is a featured player in this symphony) with sauce. There was just enough for the flavor of the San Marzano tomatoes to be detected. The sausage is made in house; the flavor of the meat is not muted by the spices but shines through. And the addition of goat cheese imparted its twangy goodness when least expected. The pizza was cooked in a true wood-fired oven and the results were perfect. Chicken parmigiana is one of those dishes that is constantly abused--not here! The chicken was served with diced zucchini and buttered pasta. There was just enough sauce and cheese on the chicken (and only the chicken) to make it interesting, not to dominate. The chicken cutlets themselves were organic and the flavor was delicate; the breading was not too thick or thin and, wonder of wonders, was not soggy on the bottom. The zucchini, which can often be bitter, was bright and fresh and the pasta was perfectly done and drizzled with butter and a hint of garlic. Nothing in this dish screamed "heavy" as is so often the case. It was a delight. (And how did I know how good the dish was? I swiped some of my friend's food--wouldn't you?)One of my friends is a tiramisu lover and although it wasn't on the menu, he asked and luckily it had been served at lunch and some was left. The portion was quite large, enough for the three of us to have just the right amount of sweetness after that wonderful meal. The flavors, like the rest of the meal, melded into a unified whole reflecting, again, a restrained hand in the kitchen.Service here is excellent. Our waiter was extremely knowledgeable of the menu, personable, attentive and efficient. Very few servers add to the enjoyment of the meal but this young man certainly did. One thing that might interest you as it did me. Chef Kuhn took the staff to Rome to experience Italian food in its native habitat. To me, this shows a dedication to food that is quite rare and it certainly is reflected in the food and the service. Come and see for yourself--you will definitely be amply rewarded! More...
Truly the best Italian in the area. You have to walk in to realize this unsuspecting corner restaurant next to a pet store is actually quite classy and serves up a menu of farm-to-table amazingness. I've eaten here a few times, always had something different, and everyone was delighted. More...
Came from California and I I regret not living here. Everything that we ordered tasted great. Recommend the crab cake with salad. I was able to meet the owner who checked in on us. The place is super clean and the restrooms are very well taken care of. More...
A hidden gem! Was heading to wine country and found this little place off the highway behind a bank, in a strip mall. It is unassuming in appearance, but the menu was really impressive. My colleagues and I opted to share a few items, and were happy with all. Especially enjoyed the pizza. A must stop if you're headed to the hills for a wine tasting. More...
This place has the best pizza in Boerne! We haven't had good pizza here since Naples has closed. Good to finally have some good Italian food back here. I highly recommend this place. Meatball appetizer was also delicious. Great customer service! Good wine selection. More...
Excellent service and food!! They are acing the farm to table concept and dining here is a fresh of breath of air! My boyfriend and I stumbled across this while on a weekend trip and were extremely surprised by this hidden little gem. We ordered the meatballs (fantastic), pork chop entree and shrimp fettuccine pasta and everything was delicious. Although the pork chop had to be recooked and brought back out to our table, the server and manager/owner were extremely proactive and attentive in getting the dish out cooked right and promptly to us. As a customer and former server, I can appreciate excellent customer service like the one we received while dining with them. The white cream based sauce in the pasta dish that I had was exquisite and by far the best Alfredo-like sauce I've ever had in my life. For dessert, we also tried the chef's mother's famous chocolate cake with vanilla bean ice cream and it was the perfect ending to a great meal. If you we lived in town or closer we would definitely return soon but I do hope we have the opportunity to do so at some point in the future! More...
Authentic Italian pasta. And local farm raised pork and veggies. Excellent Service and good wine list.
Hidden gem in Boerne. It really is hidden. Would never know about this place as it's hidden in the shopping center behind the Verizon store. Worth the hunt. Scrumptious made from scratch farm to table fare. Pastas are excellent. Everything is fresh and has an excellent wine selection. It's a quiet place to share a meal with friends or date night. More...
Mary Ellen H.
This was an awesome place! The menu is eclectic with a great wine list. I had broccoli and anchovy pizza. It was absolutely divine! Not to mention the eggs Sardinia - a take on deviled eggs but reinvented....also amazing! Homemade pasta for the lasagna over the top good! The service was just perfect and Chef Keith came out to thank us personally and chatted about his process for getting the best ingredients. You can taste the difference. We will be back!! More...
What an awesome find. Absolutely fabulous food. Crab cake and salmon bisque amazing. Small quaint with nice outdoor patio. Can wait to go back for dinner. Fresh food and excellent service. Great job ! More...
Exceptional place to dine - farm to table with an Italian flavor. Chef Keith Kuhn is European trained and serves masterful meals that are well worth the travel from Santa Antonio to Boerne.
Wow! Amazing food, great entertainment (great singer doing a wide variety of songs) and excellent service. This is a hidden gem in Boerne. It's not traditional Italian but well worth the visit. We will go back. More...
Nice food, thorough selection of wines, and hi-end service make this place worth visiting! Thanks!
Excellent food and experience! The quality, presentation and taste were all exceptional and the service was second to none! We will absolutely be back (all the way from San Antonio) and recommending Valaria to all our friends! More...

I'm not sure where to start. The atmosphere was great. Service was wonderful and the food - DELICIOUS! I enjoyed the ravioli with a lemon/mint sauce. So light so good. My sons enjoyed items from the Restaurant Week menu. Their choices included the meatballs appetizer , lasagna, chicken crepe, and the pork cheeks. They said each course was better than the last. Wine choices are fabulous. We ended our evening with chocolate sheet cake and tiramisu - both were outstanding. There is no other place in Boerne that has this quality of food. The attention to detail is remarkable. Can't wait to go back. More...
This place never disappoints. The food is always spot on. The atmosphere is quite and relaxing. The staff is amazing. My wife had the rigatoni with fresh sausage, my son's girlfriend had the quail with a citrus glaze, my son had the crab cakes, and I had the lasagna. Every one of them were excellent. It is a little pricey, but when you want a home cooked Italian dinner, this place is a must. More...
Beyond words, Farm to Table Italian! I was in heaven. Awesome overall experience with quaint dining room & Excellent server.!Wines are not too pricey but fantastic. The food is to die for and the olive oil on my bread plate was the best I ever had. I'll be back.Thank You! More...
Quality food, small portions.
Food here is sooo fresh and exquisitely prepared. The service is no less than stellar. The hubby and I love coming here. Today I just wanted to share a molten lava cake that is not your run of the mill. It was hot, rich, with a very light cake to encase it's richness. The cocoa level is about as high as a nice dark piece of chocolate. Not bittersweet, just enough . A glass of their house cab is a perfect pairing. The banana coins are candied on one side and great for dipping. I would recommend sharing this, the serving is quite generous. Cheers! More...
People drive to downtown areas of big cities to find a wonderful little chef owned restaurant that serves excellent cuisine in a nice setting.This is the chef owned restaurant with the excellent cuisine. The location could be better but the food is exceptional.I would suggest going on a weekday and trying everything from their appetizers to their desserts as the ingredients are farm to table and worth the money. I have had lunch and dinner there and the dinner experience is the best. More...
This is a truly wonderful restaurant in Boerne. With great menu staples and fantastic special items, there is always something delicious on the menu. I recently had the veal osso bucco and was amazed at the tender meat and fantastic flavors. Make sure and ask for a wine pairing with your food! More...
I had Wagu Beef potatoes grilled veggies. This place is in my top 5 restaurants to eat. I have eaten that many restaurants in many States and Canada. It is a must when in Boerne now.
Wonderful food. Great atmosphere. I am looking forward to returning.
Great service, the best Italian restaurant in Texas. The food is organic and authentic. The pizza is as good as it can get in Italy.
Excellent food, spoke with the chef and owner after dinner! The key lime was fantastic. Go and enjoy!
Excellent meal last night at Valeria! New to the Boerne area, and are committed to trying a new place every time we go out to eat. Looking for a favorite or favorites, and Valeria is a definite one on the list! The appetizer and entrees were delicious, nice and rich in fresh ingredients, and presented in a way you wanted to take time savoring every bite. Highly recommend the Shrimp Valeria, was perfect in the presentation, generous shrimp portions in a very light batter. Service was equally excellent and very attentive without hovering. Great wine selections and were appreciative that owner Keith had his own personal recommendations. We will definitely be back, so many other entree options to savor! More...
Not a large menu but excellent food and service a very nice dinner out
Great atmosphere and music. Had Lasagna and salad for lunch. Salad tasted fresh. Lasagna reminded me of Italy where ingredients are more important than salt and over the top flavors.
I love the staff. The food was amazing! I go there a lot. The owner talks to our table a lot. He is very nice and a good person. He makes the choices of having local, non-gmo food (some freshly used from their own farm!) and he has great tastes in general! He has a great wine list, too. This is my favorite place to go in Boerne! More...
I had the meatballs and my wife had the coconut shrimp. The flavors were amazing though the portions were small. We were looking for that though and would much rather have less food that tasted like that then a lot of food that was bland. The waiter was very pleasant and the atmosphere was calm. More...
Fantastic food and an extremely friendly staff. They were very kind and accommodating to our 1yr old son.
Always love what Chef Keith prepares for us. The wine dinners are superb!
Edwin and Lacy Morales
Amazing! The veal was phenomenal and extremely generously portioned! My wife had the gnocchi and it was spectacular too!Service was also great! Yay!
I have to drive into San Antonio from the west on a regular basis. I always structure my drives in such a way that I can be in Boerne at meal times. Terrific food. I think Yelp's price designation is off--I think it is pricier than 2 dollar signs. I'm also a little perplexed by the reviewers who complained of poor service. It is a small place with only a few wait staff. How could you get bad service? If your idea of good service is a kid who says "my pleasure!" when giving you your food, then maybe this isn't the place for you. Menu choices are a little restrictive and I don't recall ever seeing chicken on the menu but west of San Antonio this is the place to go. More...
I have eaten here on several occasions and the food is excellent. Farm to table and always very fresh. The staff are efficient and amiable. The prices are a bit high but for the quality it is worth it. More...
Found this place on Yelp - looking for a higher end dining experience for our anniversary and it was incredible! Beautifully presented and the food was delicious.
Wow! What a find this place was!If I could do more than 5 stars I would. Very fresh and authentic Italian ingredients. Absolutely delicious. Service was great.We had the pizza, fettuccine Alfredo with shrimp, lasagna, and of course the tiramisu. All flawless.Pasta is fresh and made in house and pizza is made right there in the front.We will be back for more.Thank you for a wonderful dinner! More...
Everything is excellent and the menu is always updated with the freshest ingredients. The chef and staff are all excellent.
Expensive for my normal budget. But this little gem is worth the cost in food and atmosphere. Here when the owner and staff check on you to make sure you are enjoying yourself they do it out of love and concern, not because it is written on a business plan from corporate. Farm fresh and out of this world excellence come together for a very special evening. We are really excited to try the Sunday brunch but don't tell anyone about that yet because I hear it is already crowded. More...
Well Folks its a typical Monday evening in Boerne Texas- Very few restaurants open.We looked and looked and dang if we did not hit the jackpot.My veal with capers was superb and DosXX was coldMy bride had the ever so slightly crusted shrimp which was excellent.Great place, granted not much in the way of atmosphere, but the chef is on his game for sure. Waitstaff was on the ball.Mark More...
Awesome Food and great service!! My favorite place in Boerne!! Everyone needs to try this place!!
We had a great experience here for dinner last week. My mother in law had a dietary need that the waiter took into account with his careful recommendations. He also recommended a wine she requested be sweet, and it was a delicious 'fruit bomb' sparkling red, so fun! Thank you Valeria! More...
The food at Valeria is outstanding! Chief Keith creates such a unique menu and takes the time to come out to speak with his tables! We have been to Valeria multiple times now and will Continue going back for both the food and atmosphere. More...
One of the best Italian restaurants I have been to so far! Brings me back to my trip to Europe for sure! All their food is natural and super delicious. If you're in Boerne this is the place to go! Very nice people! More...
Superb!! I wish I could give this place 6 stars. Food was extraordinary. We got the Wagyu Beef fillet, house salad, lasagna, and tiramisu, which were all delicious. The service was remarkably friendly and attentive. Very nice decor, and also kid friendly (our 5 year old had a blast). A great find, can't wait to go back! More...
I've only been a couple of times (and not recently) but the food has ranged from good to incredible. Keith raises his own pork and chickens, and these are indeed some of his best ingredients. I'm not all that surprised by the move away from the "farm to table" marketing and toward Italian--in fact, many of the dishes in the original concept were of this bent, so it makes perfect sense, given his background. I think more people in Boerne will gravitate toward Italian, anyway. The wine list leans heavily toward Italian, and while my taste in Italian wine seems to skew away from what Keith selects, I have been able to find some I like in the past. My only problem with Valeria is that I can't afford to eat there very often. I understand that quality ingredients cost more, but $10 for a small bowl of soup at lunch is pushing it a bit in Boerne! On the other hand the wine dinners seem to be a great value. I suspect my wallet is not the type (skinny) that Valeria is probably targeting, based on the vehicles I usually see in the parking lot. It's all good, though. And I do mean that. I'm planning a return visit to check out the new menu soon! Hope I can still get the homemade "head cheese". It is awesome! More...
A must!! Excellent food with personal service and great wines. Family owned and not a chain with the usual menu. If you are in Boerne and want a great meal in a classy setting this is your place. The joy is you can also go in dressed casual; the owners are usually there and treat you no different than if I was wearing work clothes. Dogs ok outside too!! More...
Wow. The food was simply superb. Beautiful Bibb salad. Crispy, tender veal. Pasta cooked perfectly. We got their recommended cab-merlot blend from Bordeaux and it paired so well with all the food right through dessert. Try the Key Lime tart with an espresso to complete the meal. Super attentive service! Will return. More...
Just had the most wonderful eggs sardinia and sausage with whipped mash potatoes. The sausage is made from an over 100 year old Italian receipe. It had a light but perfect spice to it. Paired up perfectly with the house Cab. Keith and his staff served us a wondeful dinner and Moses was a fantastic host. We eat there at least once a week and have had nothing but fantastic service and wonderful food. We will be back.....with Friends and Family. Thank you all. More...
One word. Sublime! Quiet celebration led me to this co-workers highest recommendation. Location was not impressive, .... Don't be fooled! This place is a gem hidden in an unlikely retail mix. Good news is most others are closed by dinner which leaves the parking available this place needs. (Serendipity? or Design!)Once inside was a nicely appointed casual elegant. Welcoming not airy, staff was polite, seasoned and professional. Zephyr (coolest name ever! "Climbing Rose") was on top of meeting my needs and my small glass never ran out. Chose 4course meal to make it easy and try more items. Each was a fresh, flavor packed stepping stone to the best pork chop, sauteed veggies with creamy potatoes I've ever tasted. Just wish it was larger, almost ate the bone! The family heritage farm pigs must be well fed themselves - delicious. As a seasoned diner I am glad to see they keep the menu simple, fresh and highest quality - in all life's experiences, we see the proof is always in the product - not the package. Take a friend, and be rewarded on this journey. Stay thirsty my friends. ;) Because his wine list is probably the best I've seen in Boerne! Recommended More...
I can't say enough good things about this restaurant. Best restaurant in Boerne and San Antonio !EVERYTHING is fantastic. I've been back 3 times in 3 weeks.
Family recommended we try this little treasure in Boerne. Moses was our server and can we say "impeccable service!" I can honestly say there isn't a salad that I've eaten that is better, everything from the veal, to the wine, to the dessert...perfect! Perfect! Perfect! Look forward to returning! More...
This a must place to try. The food is absolutely delicious. A little pricey, but, for that special occasion you can't go wrong.
Good food. I got the sausage pizza. I'd come back again. I feel that this restaurant is closer to $$$-$$$$ price range tho.
After recommendations form friends finally decided to try this place out. Its hidden in a strip mall in BoerneNice open decor with very friendly staff. All farm to table dishes. Chef stopped by to chat!We had a wonderful fresh gazpacho. Flavorful and refreshing. Then we had the Paella. It's worth the wait. Authentic, Spanish rice with plenty of seafood and Spanish chorizo. Tasted greatThe mimosas were excellent. The wine list has great variety as wellHighly recommended. We will be back!Update Nov 2016:We have been back on four more occasions and enjoyed the wine dinners hosted by Chef Kuhn and winemakers/wineries from France ,Italy and California. The wines are outstanding and the food pairings amazing. Last night's dinner, despite a packed house, was prompt and on point. Finding out the care and and dedication Chef puts into his ingredients makes us feel honored to have this outstanding establishment in our small town. I encourage more people to give Valeria a try. You won't regret it!! More...
This is a very small, storefront location off Main Street toward the east end of Boerne. It's a good location for me, because I travel up from Leon Springs.The decor is simple with industrial touches. A brick oven grabs your attention; don't you want pizza? Somewhat electronic beat (what I call thumpity-bump) music plays not Too loudly. I'm relaxed here.I had the pork saltimbocca wrapped in prosciutto with whipped potatoes & zucchini ribbons - happiness on a plate.I like the farm to table concept, and chef-run restaurants are great for people like me who have food sensitivities, so I hope they make it. Come on out & support them! More...
Esposa and I have attended three wine dinners at Valeria Farm to Table Restaurant. It's located in a strip mall in Boerne with plenty of parking. There are 2 or three tables outside and a dozen or so inside this cozy bistro. The atmosphere is relaxed and inviting. Staff are personable, attentive, and professional. Chef Keith worked his way through world of wine to food and has expertise in both areas. He's a true artist who brings passion to his inventive creations. Each of the dinners featured wines from a single winery, sources of which have included Italy, France, and California. The vintner is the guest of honor and explains the wines being served. The 5-course meals are all inclusive and although a bit pricey well worth it for the experience. We've not eaten there for a regular menu meal, so please take that into account when reading this review. Highly recommended. We'll be returning for many years to come! More...
Very Fresh and great wine selection!!! Excellent service and everything is homemade here in house!! Great atmosphere also!!
Outstanding service, our waiter Moses and the whole staff were friendly and informative. The food was delicious, fresh and organic. The atmosphere was quaint and had a homey feel with a lot of class. We didn't meet the owner but if we did I would have told him what a great idea he has with this restaurant. We loved it and will definitely be back! More...
What a find! My husband and I had a "staycation" in Boerne over the summer to celebrate our wedding anniversary. When looking for different restaurants in the area, I stumbled across Valeria and boy I'm glad I did. From the outside you would never expect what the inside delivers. It's unassuming exterior and location in a strip center belies the quality of the food that is served behind the doors. We've now visited on several occasions and it is always excellent. They have a great wine menu as well. This has become one of our "go to" restaurants in the area! More...
Lunch was wonderful! My husband and I shared their meatball appetizer, okra appetizer, shrimp entree and cheesecake dessert. PHENOMENAL!!! The environment was a little more casual than expected, but still very nice and our waiter was very friendly! Great experience, so glad we got to check out out! More...
This a must eat place. It is really good. Its pricey but very much worth it. Everything there is from the owner's farm and you can taste it. there is a wood burning stove for their pizza. There is also a very good wine selection and the staff is very knowledgeable in what to pair the food with. This a great place for lunch too. They were pretty quick getting things out. More...
We just ate here for lunch this past weekend and the food was great and the service was on point. My 3 year old son had the kid sized cheese pizza my husband and I shared Bluebonnet Farms Bibb Lettuce Salad With pickled Kuhn Farm's Pickled Beets, Taggiasca Olives, sherry vinaigrette and the 8 ounce Augustus Ranch Tenderloin served with Potato Mousseline, Sauteed Mushrooms and Kuhn Farm's Zucchini it was delicious I think it's one of the best steaks we've ever had. It is just a bit out of the way but if we ever in Boerne again we will definitely stop at Valeria. More...
Great food and wine! Started with bread and olive oil which was great and then had an okra starter that we loved. Monkfish was great and so were the scallops. Had a great bottle of wine too. Service is very good. More...
This place is such a treat- if you like fresh and creative - stop here- it is so wonderful to get farm fresh okra - fresh lettuce- all prepared in a perfect way! Scallops were perfect- yum- will be back!!!! More...
Very unique and good. My wife had the pork chop and I had the monkfish. Also we had the cheesecake. Very good!
We heard about Valeria from friends and decided to check it out. It was well worth the drive to Boerne. The food was fresh and well prepared, especially the Shrimp Valeria. Our server was friendly and efficient, and the atmosphere of the restaurant was welcoming. It there was a drawback it was that the menu is somewhat limited, but that's to be expected, I suppose, at a restaurant where the premise is farm to table. We already have another trip planned. More...
This delicious spacious healthy place could not be better ! The food carries the energy of life and love . The prices are high and eating there is s luxury . However you do get real value for your money and time . More...
Really enjoyed the Shrimp Valeria. Good sized serving with yummy squash noodles and potatoes. Would definitely order again. Had meatballs as an appetizer. Very tasty and could have been shared. Enjoyed the homemade bread with olive with a glass of the Tuscan. More...
We have been wanting to try this place and we're happy we did. The service was friendly & comfortable. The owner came out and helped us chose our wine. My husband wasn't too hungry so we opted for a light dinner. Ordered the caprese salad with homemade fresh local tomatoes..... I licked the plate clean! Also got the farfelle pasta with fresh tomatoes & basil. Delisioso! Was light and tasty. We will make this a regular spot. More...
The food was awesome and so fresh! I also loved the atmosphere. The wine selection is on point too. My kids loved the pizza while my husband enjoyed his hamburger. I had the scallop and shrimp bake and thoroughly enjoyed it. More...
This restaurant is outstanding! We ate Sunday brunch. Locally owned. Food was great!
Great food. Very nice Greek Salad. Scrumptious desserts. You have to wait a bit for your food but it's worth the wait.
A little expensive but totally worth the price. Love their fresh and organic food
super food， cozy place &nice people！We just enjoy it so much！
OMG! What a wonderful place to eat. All the food is organic and no GMOs including the soda's. I had a diet soda that was divine! Didn't know that was even possible. Atmosphere was quiet with Frank Sinatra and the like playing for music. Pricey, but really worth it for a special treat. More...
Great food and great wine. Enjoyed talking with the owner local freshness
Nice service. Fresh and simple.
My husband and I were here a few weeks ago. It was very very good. I spoke with the manager and he truly endeavors to provide the freshest ingredients for every meal. As a result, the menu changes as food is available. The item that comes from the furthest location is the Italian cheese. Straight from Italy which is great! I had spaghetti carbonara and it was so lovely. My husband had a big bowl of New Mexican stew and it was a perfect blend of spicy, flavorful ingredients. He couldn't eat it all so I had his leftovers for lunch the next day. Bonus for me! Please visit Valeria. It is dazzling! More...
Pizza was good, food was fresh and it was neat to watch the kid make it behind the glass.
My wife had the Scallops wrapped in prosciutto and I had the Shrimp Florintine; we shared the soup, which came with bread. It was all delicious, well served and in a timely manner. The suggested white wine pairing (a sav blanc blend) was excellent, making this the best meal out we've had our in a while. And it was in Boerne! More...
My wife and I had an excellent dinner last at Valeria. I had the seafood florentine and she had the southwestern soup. The florentine had a really nice balance so that the other favors came through but the cream was always there as a solid base without being too rich. It was nice to meet the chef (Kevin) and we love supporting restaurants who make sustainable choices. One other thing that was impressive was to see them make a menu out of what they had available to them. Also the basil pesto gnocchi was delicious. More...
We greatly enjoyed the Caesar salad, brick oven pizza and visiting with the owner and pizza chef. Key Lime Pie outstanding! Owner was happy to discuss wines with us. More...
Excellent, fresh ingredients, cooked properly and the seasoning was perfect. looking forward to going back again and again. I am only sorry I waited this long to try the restaurant. More...
Wonderful. We shared the cheese plate...wonderful. I had the Shrimp Valeria...it was excellent!! Lightly battered. My husband had the chicken & loved it. Great wine. Our waiter, Juan was great. I love places that serve local stuff!! More...
A new favorite restaurant. Well worth the drive from San Antonio. Few restaurants have menus where every listing looks like a winner. This is a true farm-to-table place unlike some in the area that are trying to capitalize on the slow food movement with lots of artisanal artifacts covering up a Sysco truck unloading in the back. More...
This restaurant is just what Boerne needs! Delicious farm to table food, great service, and wonderful wines! We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner and will definitely be back!
I rarely write reviews, but this restaurant is worth my time. I've been 5 or 6 times and I always love what I order. I love that it's farm to table! I have no idea why, but there's never a wait. Prices are a little high so I usually reserve coming for date nights and without kids. More...
Excellent food, good service and a very interesting menu selection. All locally sourced ingredients, I highly recommend a visit. Will post a pic later
I just had lunch there today and it was fantastic! I had the lamb burger which was cooked perfectly. My husband had a margarita pizza and he ate the entire thing; my husband is not a foodie and prefers simple dishes but he sure will tell you if he doesn't enjoy something. He loved every bite. Service was great as well. Anyone concerned about the price, realize that a meal at Wataburger is about $12.00 and that is for fast food garbage. Valeria is local, they serve real food (you are supporting your neighbors) and it is amazingly delish. Spending a couple extra dollars is totally worth it. More...
Read good reviews on Yelp. We tracked it down. We had a wonderful meal. Cheeses from VT with crispSliced apple, pecans & toast to start. Followed by wine,spicy lamb shank with yummy sweet potatoes. Spaghetti carbonara was real comfort food. More...
This is THE restaurant to go to in Boerne. Hands down. My husband and I are from Houston and we took a Texas Hill Country road trip to see the blue bonnets. On our loop back towards Houston, we spent the night in Boerne. After a 5+ mile challenging hike at Lost Maples, we drove into Boerne and found Valeria on Yelp. With the awesome reviews, we had to go. Man, are we glad we did!We had a lamb meatball appetizer. It may not sound like much, but a slice of lamb meatball on homemade sourdough bread with a scoop of carmelized onions on top turned out to be extremely flavorful. It also came with mini pickles that were tasty.For entrees, my husband and I split a margherita pizza with fresh buffalo mozzarella on top and a charbroiled cheeseburger with melt-in-your-mouth fries and homemade ketchup. Both were phenomenal. If you like crispy fries though, these are not the fries for you.Amazingly, we still had room for dessert and I'm so glad we did! We got the key lime pie and the strawberry pie. Both are made by the owner's mother. The key lime pie was literally the best key lime pie both my husband and I have ever had. And the exact same thing can be said about the strawberry pie! Just to die for.This place recently celebrated its one year anniversary. I sincerely hope this place is still around when we take our next road trip. LOVE IT! More...
Very quaint and nice ambiance! I was disappointed in the size of my shrimp dish but my husband's chicken was a nice portion. I wish the waitress would have recommended a salad. The Tuscan wine was great and the chocolate cake was just ok. Good for a nice date night in Boerne. More...
Fantastic gem to find on our day in Boerne. One of those small restaurants that is much, much better than the location suggests. Had the best bowl of soup of my life here, rutabega and cardamom I believe... Fantastic pizzas, great Italian dishes, and a good wine selection. Eat here. More...
Mushroom plate was phenomenal, fennel salad was amazing. Beets and pasta were very good. No disappointments at all. Don't be scared away by the strip mall front and don't be in a hurry. You won't be sorry.
We had an exceptional dining experience at Valeria's. The food was superb and the service equally so. Karen was a wonderful server. Very friendly and awesome attitude. Loved how she paid special attention to our son. Like he was taking mom and dad out to dinner. We loved it. They also have an incredible wine selection. Mostly Spanish and Italian, but very good options. Hope to be back soon. By the way, the pizza is really good. Easy to make this our pizza and wine go to. More...
Fantastic food and service ! The lamb burger was amazing and the in house made ketchup was delightful!
Wonderful food and great staff. The owner came out and greeted us, then talked about his concept. Our two kids really loved it as well. Casual and fun atmosphere, but still very nice for a night out. Wine selection is amazing, they import several from Italy and Europe. Great job! More...
I had to give 5 stars on the burger alone. Remember Marshall's quest for the best hamburger in New York on 'How I Met Your Mother?' I decided to start my own quest in the San Antonio area, but I didn't get far, hell, I only got about 2 miles from my house! Yes, it's 16$ for the burger and fries, all homemade mind you, including the ketchup*. Worth...every...penny. Farm to table means an inconsistent menu. It changes daily based on what is available. I have noticed the three times I was there, all within a matter of a month, the menu had indeed changed each time, but the burger was always there. It's my understanding that you can always get the burger and pizza any day, as well as their tomato basil soup. The burger changes though. One day I had some awesome butter lettuce and a thick, homemade potato bun included, another day the lettuce was more of a crunch slaw like lettuce and the potato bun, while still home-made, was somewhat thinner and included poppy seeds. Both were glorious. One hint, if you get the burger, make sure you stress to the server how you want it cooked.Service is great, I've only once seen more than one server, it's a small place and not crowded, though the tables are. It is in a location that is known for restaurants to fail, and I sincerely hope they break that tradition or find a new home. If you are in a hurry to eat, and they do have lunch specials, let the server know immediately, otherwise your meal could take awhile.Other food I have had is the garlic bread, that actually has sliced garlic on it, my one year old loves it! The crab crake entrée that I have only seen once on the menu, and the margherita pizza; they were all exceptional. I did not care for the tomato basil soup which is a customer favorite, but I'm not a fan of soup anyway. Food great, service very, very nice, but slow. Environment is mellow and kid friendly. The server/host I've had each time is so very friendly, and sensitive to needs. Again, if time is an issue, let him know. *I tried to make ketchup recently, Valeria's is what I hoped mine to be.....instead of a crockpot of vinegar smelling liquid.I also rated 3 dollar signs, but that's because I usually have two glasses of wine :) More...
I was really impressed with the food here. We were hungering for good burgers and we found them. Also, tried some great wines. My only suggestions would be to make the outside as good as the inside. Valeria Farm to Table couldn't be in a less counter-intuitive location--a business section with a couple of restaurants and a bank. Enclose the outside area with some plants and you are set.Also, we got a menu that did not include burgers, but we were so desperate we asked and sure enough, they were available. I think this place could benefit from a comprehensive lunch menu.Pros: Boerne shuts down at the nicer places after 2 p.m. between lunch and dinner and this place is open continuously. If you like good food, go to this place!The food is top-notch, and the wine list is really great. The wines we tried were really interesting. We actually bought a bottle at retail price. What a treat.Burgers---off the chain.Appetizers: Eggplant appetizer-delish.Got a chance to chat with the owner, and will definitely be coming back for special dinners and tastings. If you are a Boerne resident, or from San Antonio, you need to support this place. The weird location can throw you off, but it is really, really good food. More...
The quality of the food is outstanding. We sampled cod, pork, burger and pizza. Every dish blows aways every other comparable dish I've had at other restaurants in greater San Anotonio. I am very fortunate to have this quality food in Boerne. Professional, great food, in Boerne yet. I just love it. More...
This is the kind of healthy organic, homegrown delicious gourmet food that everybody needs to be eating all the time. Everything is absolutely delicious !!!! It's worth every penny.
From one food snob to another... I highly recommend this place. Well worth the drive from San Antonio. Everything was extremely fresh, with a great wine selection. Great service too! This is truly a hidden gem. My only recommendation is to soften the lighting to heighten the ambience of the dining area. And I would suggest opening a location in Stone Oak... It would generate some nice revenue with that clientele! Thanks again... Ill be back. More...
All I can say is yummy, yummy, yummy! It was so fresh. I had the lamb burger. Monday is half price bottles of wine. The attention to detail with service was impeccable. This was a hidden gem. The chef is amazing, the food is so fresh. Once you eat here everything else is just sub par. More...
Bottom line: This is hands-down an excellent meal and well worth your money. The food is delicious and sourced for very high quality and fresh ingredients. The owners even have their own small farm which adds to some of the meats on the menu.We ordered the Tempura vegetables (but I am blanking on the name), which were delicious, light, and a nice mix of vegetables and shrimp.Then we had a Bacon Cheeseburger, Shrimp Lo Mein, and Shrimp Valeria for entrees. The Bacon Cheeseburger came on a wonderful and fluffy homemade bun, was not greasy at all, and one of the best burgers I have tried in a very long while. The Shrimp Lo Mein had a delicious smoky flavor with lots of fresh vegetables and shrimp (ask for the sweet chili sauce on the side as a great addition!). The Shrimp Valeria rightfully carries the restaurant's name and is as beautiful in presentation as it is delicious.For dessert, we tried the Apple Tart, which has all the flavors, flaky crust, and apple appeal of a hearty apple pie - and creamy ice cream as a great sidekick. We also had the Caramel Creme and loved the texture, caramel, and fresh berries paired with it. Nobody had much room left from the rest of our meal but the desserts were too good to leave anything on our plates.The owner came and visited with us toward the end of our meal and shared some stories of searching for the freshest ingredients. He is very nice and loves his customers. More...
I was privileged to drop by last week for lunch. The service was impeccable, water glass was refilled every time it was half filled. The express lunch, which my husband and I had was delicious. The lunch came with a choice if 2 soups, a beautiful salad and an entree. I chose the asparagus soup which was served at the proper temperature, the flavor was not too salty or chicken "brothy". The bread in my sandwich was homemade. I had the chicken salad which was a nice combination of cranberries and chunks of chicken. Dressed properly without too much mayo. My husband had the roast beef, plenty of meat and a lovely tasty sandwich. We will return, expansive wine list, great decor, and a great vibe. Welcome to Boerne! More...
I love the idea of eating clean, local, and fresh and I don't mind paying a little extra to give my body (and my family) what I believe we should be eating. I am happy to support the effort for "farm to table" in little ol' Boerne Texas! It's refreshing to have a healthy alternative in this town with insanely fresh greens and veggies, doughs from scratch, and organic, free range (mostly local, TX) meats and cheeses. I actually just made my Yelp account so I could give them the awesome review they deserve. The staff was super friendly, especially Karen (who is also fabulously entertaining!), professional and courteous. The pizza is made in front of you and cooked in a wood-fired oven...it's amazing. I only left off one star because of the Paella, which I tried tonight with my husband. The price is hefty at $38, so we assumed it would serve two, which it did. However, I ended up eating my sons pizza instead because it truly lacked luster and from my experience (eating Paella in Spain) was not quite done right...or at least not done according to the traditional method. I was very sad because I truly was hoping it would be amazing and I would now have a local spot to relish one of my favorite dishes for those special occasions when I must have a taste of Spain. Way too much liquid in the bottom of the pan, which to me indicated it didn't stew for the correct amount of time. The flavor also seemed "watered down" rather than rich and slightly spicy as I was expecting. Other than that, I am a fan of this lovely place!!!! Definitely worth a visit. Freshness you can taste and guilt free if you care about where your food comes from More...
Fantastic place to eat in Boerne. Farm to table ingredients, prepared perfectly. Great wine list too.
Oh my goodness this place is delicious!!! And you can feel good about it too because it's GMO free all organic from the owners' farm! You've got to try the three tier carrot cake and lobster chowder. And the live flamenco guitar on Thursday nights is so refreshing and beautiful! Get a dose of culture and amazing food...Quick before the secret is out! More...
Delicious burgers!! Super happy to have them in town providing quality food to our community!
This is the second time we have come here for lunch and the food was magnificent both times. Everything was fresh and well presented. Our server, Juan, was very knowledgeable of the food and he was friendly. He remembered is from our previous visit and that was so nice to hear him welcome us back. We plan to make this a regular weekend lunch stop. More...
Absolutely awesome restaurant in Boerne. We have eaten both lunch and dinner here and believe it is the best restaurant in the hill country. Ambience is lovely with cloth tablecloths and napkins and fresh flowers on the tables. At lunch we shared a roasted beet salad which was delicious and I don't particularly care for beets! The meats in our entrees of lamb burger and fried chicken sandwich were perfectly cooked and I loved the rosemary on my fries. Nice touch! Valeria has impressive wine list with affordable wines by the glass. Much appreciated. Service was excellent. We can't wait to return. If you're in the Boerne area, do not miss this restaurant. It's an unassuming place in a strip mall, but culinary treats are inside. More...
Fantastic food. Expertly prepared. Wonderfully subtle flavors and fresh ingredients. This is a jewel in Boerne but compares very well to upscale restaurants in Houston or Dallas etc. but in a simple, laid back setting. Try it. You will be glad you did. More...
Very good experience. Best meal we've had yet since our move to the area. Location is a little questionable and the build out is nothing fancy, but after all...you go to a restaurant to EAT! We had Pasta Carbonara and it it rivaled the best I've had. Also ordered steak entree and the Bordelaise sauce was amazing. Worth a try...just don't judge a book by its cover. Read the book. You'll enjoy it. Oh yeah, my wife just said the food was amazing. And don't miss out on Mrs. Kuhn's homemade pies. We ate every bite! More...
Great dining experience in Boerne, TX. Fantastic beets and goat cheese app, lasagna was amazing. Wine choices great and prices are reasonable. Boerne has needed a restaurant like this, farm to table and the ingredients are so fresh. Frequent often, I know we will. Ellie B. More...
My friend and I went in for lunch today. Small, quaint place. I ordered the Monterrey chicken and my friend got the Frito pie. Both were fabulous! A little pricey but sooo worth it for an outstanding meal! More...
We had a great meal and evening at Valeria! The food was extremely fresh and prepared just right. We did have to add salt to our dishes, but I'd much rather add than it be too salty...and loved the small dish of sea salt provided versus a shaker! We were surprised there were not more steak options on the menu, but understand that they change the menu daily based on what is in season and what they have on hand. My husband had the beef tenderloin dish and enjoyed, even the asparagus was cooked perfectly. I had the Lemon Sole and it was amazing! The fish was fresh, the crust was crispy and the inside was piping hot and cooked perfectly. The spicy homemade tarter sauce was a great addition. It was a pleasure speaking with the Executive Chef and owner who made a point to go by each table and was glad to share his suggestions. Hopefully as they are open longer (currently 4 1/2 months) the wait staff will become more knowledgeable about the wines, but the owner had great recommendations. We will definitely be back. More...
Unbelievable! This food rivals San Francisco, Paris, Manhattan and beyond! Keith, the owner, has been trained all over the world and grew up in San Antonio. His beautiful wife is a retired Lt Col and graduate from the Air Force Academy. We are so fortunate they moved to Boerne and have a passion for clean, grass fed, owner farm raised food and make EVERYTHING from scratch and the finest ingredients. It is even more special because they care. You spend money here and not only will you have the best meal of your life, you will be supporting an incredible family. More...
Valeria is a wonderful addition to the growing Boerne restaurant scene and fills a very important niche for sustainably harvested non-gmo food. On top of that, everything I have eaten there in at least ten visits is absolutely delicious.With a menu that changes regularly, it is often difficult to choose which dish to try as ordering all of them would constitute gluttony. From excellent locally sourced products such as grass fed beef and goat, to always fresh never frozen fish, Keith and team deliver meals that are refreshing to taste and wonderful with expertly paired wine selections.The wine selection at Valeria is simply amazing! Here you will find some of the best wines available from across the world at very reasonable prices. Having been to a recent wine dinner there...you really should try one of these...we found wines that are easily better than vintages that sell for twice the price. Make sure and ask about bottles to take home!With a comfortable atmosphere and friendly staff, this is a family owned and operated restaurant that delivers on all fronts. More...
Super. Impressed. My man and I walked in 30 minutes to close so we felt a lil guilty being 'that' table. Our game plan was to order our food to go and have a couple apps while we wait. To start we shared a Greek salad with some of the tastiest feta cheese I've ever tried. Nice and gamey like real feta should be! I don't even like olives but the Mediterranean blend on this salad lent just enough flavor. As for the app, we had the crab fritters. Three large fritters with an impressive amount of crab! Topped with a romesco sauce sitting on top of a saffron aioli of sorts. Delicious. To go we ordered the paella. Also, delicious! Nice and hot when we got home with TONS of seafood, all very fresh. We haven't even gotten to dessert yet as I'm still savoring the paella. I'm sure it will not disappoint. We will definitely be returning and recommending this lil gem to friends and family. More...
Had dinner here Saturday evening and the food was wonderful. The menu was impressive and apparently changes daily. Organic and farm to table offering. Not a prime location but thanks to yelp, we found it. The service was friendly and attentive. Looking forward to coming back. More...
My wife and I were looking for a healthy lunch and found a great-tasting one, too! We had the Steak Diane and a Salmon dish. Both came with potatoes (mine fried, hers probably as well but seasoned with Rosemary). What impressed me was that the potatoes were fried in olive oil - they spared no expense. We also chose the carrot cake for dessert (we had to reward ourselves for choosing healthy at lunch!) It was fabulous, too! I'm grateful that there is a restaurant out there that allows us to prioritize health in our eating. Typically, in order to eat like this we have to stay home. It is nice to give my wife a break and not sacrifice our bodies for it. Staff is knowledgeable and hard-working. Worth every penny! Thank you for this treat - please keep up the great work! More...
SO GOOD! delicious shrimp Valencia, bacon cheese burger, caprese sandwich, and salmon roulade! We ate everything on our plates and plan on coming back! Fresh tastes on everything!! Attentive waiter, beautiful presentation!! MUST come try More...
There are truly few safe places to eat anymore. Valeria does it right! Fresh, local and carefully planned. Yet it serves up traditional "out to eat options".
First time here for Sunday brunch and it was excellent. Had the Migas and now understand what they are really supposed to taste like. My wife had the eggs benedict and it was great as well. Food is locally sourced and organic. Portion sizes are sane and service was excellent. Highly recommended, support local small business in Boerne. More...
We had a terrific experience at Valeria. Just moved from restaurant heaven (Houston) to a charming small town (Boerne) and knew dining out would be challenge. But Valeria is leading a movement to offer more upscale options here. Food and service were excellent. Prices reflect the quality. We wish Keith and his team the success they are working hard to achieve and hope Boerne supports them. More...
We tried this place on Saturday night based on a recommendation.We were happily surprised with what we found. Finally an alternate restaurant to Cypress Grill in Boerne with interesting and well prepared food. The wine list was decent and the service was good (new server) and I could tell that he had been trained well.The menu had so many interesting things on it, as a table of 4 we ordered 6 things just to try several that sounded great. All were very good. More...
Seriously, the best restaurant in Boerne. Every night is a new menu of amazing things. I could eat here every night. The Burrata w/ pesto and warm flat bread is an amazing starter. The chief will cook the homemade flatbread in front of you in his pizza oven Each night's menu is based in the chief and his family's travels around Europe with a few local favorites thrown in. The worst part of this whole experience is I have to only pick one of them items on the menu. More...
This was my first visit and I was so impressed! The food is all organic and incredibly tasty. I recommend the charcuterie with a glass (or two!) of wine. The entire family is in on the operation which gives the experience an extra warm feel. It is a true labor of love in every sense of the word: we the patrons are so fortunate. More...
The food was outstanding in every way. The service was the best from the hostess(Valerie) at the door, wait staff and Keith the owner introducing himself during our dinner. Add a bottle of fine wine and it doesn't get much better. We will be back. We highly recommend Valeria as a great choice for dinner. More...
I am torn between 4 and 5 stars. Finally, Boerne has a restaurant serving real food. Food made from scratch with wholesome non gmo ingredients.First the negatives:1. Waitress, though polite, did not seem educated about the menu. She knew nothing about the wine list. However, this appeared mainly to be a matter of training, not that she is a bad waitress.2. Adults food came out first. This is a pet peeve of mine. Never keep toddlers waiting for food. Never serve them last!3. Kid's spaghetti had whole peppercorns in them. Nope. Most kids won't like that.Positives:1. Real food! Not derivative of something else, but original, fresh, tasty food. Can't say that of any other restaurant in Boerne. Not at all. Miles above any of their competition in town.2. Cod with risotto was amazing. Risotto was just excellent, cod was divine.3. Paella was good, not great because shrimp was slightly overdone, scallops were tiny. However, I'm being picky. Still better than any other paella in town- wait, there is no other paella in town!4. Pizza-excellent. Nothing to add here5. Owners-very nice, came to table to discuss food and concept. Rectified the spaghetti incident.I am betting this review will be read by the owners, and I'm betting next time I come in I will be able to give this five stars. Currently, I'm ranking them not with their competition in town, because they have none. I'm ranking them in comparison with the finest dining I've had in foodie towns. Solid four stars. I hope this review helps lead people to visit this restaurant, because I want it to succeed.By the way, interior was nicely done and comfortable. Location sucks because it is hidden, but soon enough I bet they will have to move to a bigger space.Thank you so much for raising the bar so high! We will be back! More...
awesome food!sadly, they didn't have the burger on their menu today because they ran out of buns. i guess that's what happens they're so popular! will definitely have to come back to try it :) More...
This place is amazing. It has just opened. Fine dining finally makes it to Boerne. I was so happy to see Valeria serve such great quality food for a very reasonable price. The pizzas are probably the best I've ever had. The kale and salmon are my favorite. It's a causal atmosphere, so I can enjoy top notch dishes and bring my kids. I am definitely coming back. More...
