Great place, Food was great.

My only complaint would be where we were sitted. It was very crampy and right near a area where staff was constantly coming by. I was worried that i would knock over the shelving behind me.

Kneading Ruby always excels! The menu is simple and the excellence is in the quality of the food which is sublime. Melt in your mouth gnocchi. Unbelievably buttery and delicious garlic bread. Fresh salads to balance. The service is attentive and informed. AND you don’t need to take a mortgage to pay the bill. Im a fan!

12/10 everything was amazing, excellent service & delicious high quality food. Nice beers on tap. The gnocchi was something I wouldn’t attempt at home & was soooo good, we shared with friends, having the beef cheeks, salad & pizza. All cooked to perfection. Very very tasty food.
The only disappointing part is when you get full haha. Best restaurant in Wollongong!
& make sure you try the garlic bread.
