One of my favorite restaurants in the North Hills is Andora. At one time, I lived in Franklin Park and this quickly became a frequent stop. The bar always has a nice crowd and the people are talkative and friendly. In addition they have a beautiful shaded patio if you prefer to dine outside.
We usually would sit at the bar and try a couple of starters. The ahi tuna is tremendous as are the stuffed banana peppers and the crab cakes might be the best I've ever had! The dinner menu includes horseradish crusted Alaskan cod, Slow roasted lamb shank, and veal scallopini sauteed with crabmeat. They also have a nice wine list that features a group of 20 wines for $20 a bottle. I really like that! It makes it possible to enjoy a bottle of wine with dinner at a very affordable price.
It's just about a 1/2 mile off the Mt. Nebo exit on 79, or you can get there by taking the Parkway North and get off at the Camp Horne Road exit, turn right at the bottom of the ramp and make a left at the first stop light.
