Vesuvio Pizzeria and Spaghetti House may have survived SARS, a late-night heist in 1988 where a bandit made off with a safe containing $67,000 and fought alcohol prohibition in The Junction for 30 years. But it couldn’t cope with COVID-19. The Junction staple, located at 3010 Dundas St. W., near Keele St., announced Tuesday night on Facebook it was permanently closing on Sunday after 63 years in business, citing economic struggles since shuttering its dining room during the pandemic and people opting to cook at home instead of getting takeout.
