Dine-in or carry-out

Fresco On First occupies the first floor of the building located in the heart of downtown Dixon, IL.

Enjoy healthy, delicious options made with fresh ingredients carrying on its tradition of serving high-quality dishes. Also offered are a wide variety of locally roasted gourmet coffees, teas, and smoothies.
