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.

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

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