Bella figlia dell'amore (Beautiful daughter of love) is a vocal quartet from act 3 (No. 18) of Verdi's 1851 opera Rigoletto.

It has been described as a "masterful quartet that is an intricate musical depiction of four personalities and their overlapping agendas",[1] and has been performed and recorded by many notable artists.

The plot of the 2012 film Quartet revolves around a performance of this quartet.

Rigoletto Paraphrase (1859, S. 434) is a piano reduction of the quartet by Franz Liszt. Another paraphrase was written by German composer Wilhelm Krüger [de] (1820–1883) as his Op. 61.
