Raleigh, N.C. — Casalinga, a longtime north Raleigh restaurant, has shut its doors for good.
The Italian restaurant in the Mini-City shopping center at 4538 Capital Blvd. closed on Friday. It had been open for 18 years.

"Your support and friendship has meant the world. To us, 2013 is the beginning of new opportunities," read the statement signed by "Josephine and the Casalinga family."
There was no word on why the restaurant closed.
