Great atmosphere, knowledable staff with an excellent feel for service. Food tastes great! The only “negative” is that single glasses of wine is not served at the table, but that’s me nitpicking. Definitely a place to visit when in Wollongong!

As wonderful an experience as always! We arrived at opening dinner time and as a result were in a very quiet restaurant for the majority of the night. The pork was the star of our dining experience. We have made a habit of coming here for special occasions and this evening has done nothing to change that. We will be back. :)

Service is always excellent at Kneading Ruby. Staff are attentive but not over bearing. Felt like the chef may have changed as the Gnocchi which we often have was very different to how it has been in the past.

Nice new range of wines and plenty of organic and biodynamic options which is great to see

Kneading Ruby just keeps excelling at their craft. We had the polenta chips, gnocchi and the pepperoni pizza. The pizza especially has improved since last time and we’ll definitely be back. My only negative would be the lacklustre beer menu. More taps and better bottle selection would be appreciated.

Been there several times including bringing business customers and have always enjoyed the evening.

Food is usually great but last night the pizza was soggy and disappointing. Other menu items we had were of the usual good standard.

A lovely cafe hidden away in the centre of Wollongong, that exudes class and comfort while boasting a wide range of traditional Italian pizzas and modern flavourful cocktails. Great staff and great food.

Food was fresh and clean, it wasn't the kind of food I would choose to eat. I booked the restaurant as it was highly recommended by a friend which her and her husband love. The service was great and so was the ambience. Fun for big groups but not for a romantic dinner. Reasonably priced.
