Sabina Battista

Ferdinando's has been around for 98 years and is the second oldest restaurant in Brooklyn. The interior has a tin ceiling and floor and is nostalgic looking. It is unique because it serves ethnic Sicilian food, not Italian. Many well known people have eaten here including Mike Piazza, Mayor Bloomberg and the police commissioner because it has good food and is well-known. Twenty years ago, Frank Sinatra's chauffer came to buy rice balls.
