Our History

The Old Town Pizza Parlor continues a tradition of family that goes back over 70 years.  Michael Tafoya, the owner of Old Town Pizza Parlor, takes pride in offering the same festive atmosphere that his grandparents started in the Queen Ann/New Mexico Vernacular style adobe building in the heart of Old Town Albuquerque.  Old Town Pizza Parlor is where families, friends and colleagues can enjoy the highest quality homemade Italian dishes in Albuquerque with a delicious New Mexican twist.

Michael Tafoya’s grandparents, John and Frances Apodaca purchased the beautiful adobe style building in Old Town from the De Blassie family in the late 1930s.  John took his experience as a chef at the Fred Harvey and Alvarado hotels and started his own restaurant with his wife Frances by his side.  For forty years, John, Frances, and their daughter Barbara served legendary New Mexican fare to a loyal clientele who were treated as “familia”  at the Old Town Chile Parlor.

At the Old Town Pizza Parlor you will experience the same legendary New Mexican food with a twist.  By fusing together nostalgic traditions from the past with a fresh, contemporary flair, you will enjoy made from scratch Italian specialties.  Come join us at the Parlor in the heart of of Old Town where you can choose Italian dishes such as specialty pizzas, calzones, subs, and freshly baked pastas, followed by rich and decadent desserts.

Virginia Vallejos

Love the patio! I was tempted to order the ring of fire but kept it simple, cheese pizza for the kids, pepperoni sausage and green chile. The service was fantastic, attentive and generous. It was 4th of July weekend around noon. The pizzas were delish, will definitely return!

Jaime “Mangiabella” C.

Driving back to Amarillo TX from visiting family in AZ wanted something different than fastfood. Stumbled upon this little gem! It was probably some of the best pizza I have ever had! Amazing job!

Amanda Courtemanche

Wow! First time and I’m addicted. The calzone has a great fresh dough and the pizza is fresh and amazing! Had a great time. Will be going back very soon!!
