Vento Haragano is a huge place with a massive “salad bar” in the middle of the place. The bar has about 5 counters and contains fruit, salad, ham, vegetables, cheese, breads, sushi, and salad. It is all you can eat bonanza. In addition carvers roam the room with skewers of different cuts of meat. You have a coaster like thing that says stop here on one side and no more on the other. There were supposed to be over 20 cuts of beef, pork, chicken, lamb and fish, but it seemed to have repeats of about a dozen options instead. The large tables are spaced nicely and set with white tableclothes and napkins. The room has a domed ceiling in the center that has beams soaring up accent the salad bar area below. There was plenty of noise in the room and lots of big groups making a party of the meal, but it was still easy to have a conversation at the table. Most of the guests were men (about 70% to 30% women). The servers were all friendly.
At first they brought garlic rolls and fried polenta. The rolls were pretty gummy and the polenta crisp and nice.
Next came some fried bananas, 3 onion rings and a plate of french fries. The rings had too much breading for onion and the fries were average. I liked the bananas.
The salad options were plentiful but mostly unexciting except for the breadth of the selection.
From the meat skewers, it was hard to get much rare meat as when the edge was cut the server would run back to put it on the grill again and brown the edge. Most of the meats were tender but some not. The most interesting was hump meat. It was chewy.
The bathrooms were equipped with floss and mouth wash.
