Ortino's Northside offers a wide variety of draft beers, including US craft beer (from local PA breweries and from other areas of the US). A few Belgians are usually available, and there are a few taps devoted to lighter main-stream brands. The bottle selection is great too, with an entire area devoted to Belgians.
The atmosphere inside is warm and inviting - great because it's non-smoking. Food is fairly consistent with a slight italian theme. Menu items vary from sandwiches and salads to more substantial entree' offerings. There are usually daily specials, even during the week. The smoked specials are fabulous (pulled pork, brisket, smoked chicken and ribs). Outdoor seating is also nice, however, not sure why but the outdoor bar isn't always open, even on a weekend. Inside usually has a live singer/guitar player on Friday PM.
The only letdown about this place is the service. I have been visiting this restaurant for over five years and the service is fair at best; the beer is the main reason we go back. There is one very friendly server who is also beer knowledgeable - in my opinion this is very important when you are serving such a wide variety of beer. However, in my experience, the remaining servers usually know little to nothing about describing a beer to a customer. Service can also be slow and they often seems understaffed. When sitting at the tables that surround the bar or at the bar, do not expect service to be great, especially on a busy night, since one bartender also serves the tables around the bar and is running back and forth between pouring drinks for other servers, waiting on the bar and the tables around the bar.
Overall, it's definitely worth the visit for the beer selection and food.
