Fantastic service from staff who are very experienced and focused on customer service. The cuisine (I don’t use this word unless it is relevant) was impressive and extremely good value.

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.

Awesome service and food as always. Garlic bread and polenta chips are always a winner. Wish they would bring back the cabbage/apple/nuts/goats curd salad they had though!

Food was outstanding. Service was a little slow, but considering how busy the venue was, it was more than acceptable. Looking forward to my next visit. Definitely worth checking it out if you haven’t already been there.

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.

My partner and I have been to Kneading Ruby a few times and this was easily our favourite visit. The food keeps getting better, the new additions to the cocktail menu were great and our waiter was brilliant! He was efficient, very observant and built a great rapport with us even while being very busy. We’ll be back very soon!

Couldn’t be happier with our birthday function. The attention to detail was incredible, the staff really went above and beyond to accomodate. The food was outstanding and everyone loved it. The $40 banquet is sensational value especially when you consider the service they provided. Couldn’t be happier, highly recommend. It’s a little on the noisy side but not too bad, could still chat easily.

We didn't know they took fish off the menu for the night, no one mentioned that to us, not kneading ruby or open table. We already knew what we wanted and it wasn't available.

While we appreciated there being a vegan menu, it would have been nice for some more choice within this menu. And for a better vegan dessert than just sorbet while others had chocolatey desserts.
