Sonata’s Restaurant brings the “food is life” philosophy to Scottsdale, concentrating on real, fresh and in-season ingredients combined with modern techniques and meticulous attention to detail. Sonata’s executive chef presents “art on the plate,” featuring global flavors while introducing the traditional dining style of Europe to guests at every meal.

The modern European restaurant is family owned and operated, with Lithuanian-born namesake Sonata Molocajeviene Tuft’s own recipes serving as inspiration for the menu’s innovative interpretation of traditional Old World dishes. Sonata’s son, COO Deividas Molocajevas, developed the restaurant’s stunning and upscale environment, which has been acutely designed to meld a luxurious yet comforting atmosphere that ensures guests feel right at home when they walk through the door. The interior features decadent dining space as well as a private group dining area, while the inviting patio has been recently transformed into a lush garden environment. From intimate groups to large private events and celebrations, Sonata’s Restaurant is happy to cater to guests every need.

We invite you to dine with us, drink with us and become part of our family at Sonata’s Restaurant.

Sonata Molocajeviene Tuft


Lithuanian-born Sonata Molocajeviene Tuft has traveled the world, but now calls Paradise Valley home. However, she feels that the Scottsdale dining scene is missing something — authentic European food. “Before if I wanted a taste of home, I would have to spend all day cooking. I figured other people are missing out on the tastes of the world, too. So why not bring some European flavors to Scottsdale?” With her own arsenal of classic Lithuanian recipes, she helped the Chef create European comfort food — with an American twist and some Scottsdale flair. As the restaurant’s owner and namesake, Sonata’s portrait graces the restaurant as does much of her style influences, but the beautiful redhead notes her husband’s business skills, Deividas’ (her son) education and worldly personality, and the experience of the rest of the development team as the keys to the future success of the restaurant. “We’re introducing people to ethnic dishes that are high quality, organic, healthy and creative,” she says.

Deividas Molocajevas


Deividas Molocajevas, COO and Chief Designer is described as analytical, driven and good humored, the restaurateur found his calling almost by accident. As he earned his degree in Healthcare Management at a university in Chicago, he and his family got to know Andrew and Laura Bucas while dining at their restaurants in Chicago. Deividas convinced them to come out West to help him introduce Scottsdale to the best of Old World European Cuisine. His background in construction has come in handy guiding the restaurant through the remodel, and his passion for interior design is evident throughout the restaurant. When he’s not working around the clock at Sonata’s, you’ll find Deividas modeling, exercising, producing music, traveling and juicing— though preferably not cleaning the juicer. One of his priorities is his family as he wouldn’t be who and where he is without them!

Andrew and Laura Bucas

Restaurateur duo Andrew and Laura Bucas opened their first restaurant, Grand Dukes, in 2005, and six years later opened their second, Old Vilnius Café in the Darien suburb of Chicago. Both have since been visited by Lithuanian celebrities, including the president, and often receive accolades from the Chicago Tribune and the Chicago Sun Times. While Laura jokes she likes to stay “behind the scenes” as Sonata’s accountant, her design elements are very prominent throughout the restaurant, as she and Deividas worked closely together to fine tune the glamorous décor at Sonata’s. Meanwhile Andrew’s influences are prevalent on the menu, where he has worked with Local Area Chefs to creative a unique menu indicative of many European cuisines as well as healthy and organic juice combinations for Restart Bar. He also brought the idea for Sonata’s Hangover Soup with him from Chicago — we’re not asking whether he knows from personal experience if the soup really does its job.
