Woodward Avenue pizza and pasta restaurant Pasquale's plans to close after 65 years in business in Royal Oak.

WDIV first reported that the Italian restaurant plans to call it a day.

"It is with much sadness that we are announcing our closure. Our last day of business will be Sunday, April 7, 2019," the company said in a statement. "This was a difficult decision and we want to express our gratitude to all of our loyal customers for your patronage over the past 65 years. Pasquale's would not have thrived without you. Thank you for the memories. We will cherish them always."

The DelGiudice family, which has owned the iconic eatery since since it opened in 1954, announced in October that it was listing the property for sale.

"My brothers and I grew up here; it's always been family-run and we'll miss feeding the community," co-owner Michael DelGiudice said in a release in October. "We've been slowing down naturally for the last few years, and after discussing this internally we believe the timing is right."

The 7,587-square-foot restaurant at 31555 Woodward Ave. is listed with a Class C liquor license.
