Como are struggling near the foot of the table, but they more than held their own for an hour.
However, Inter have one of Italy`s most potent forward lines and goals by Christian Vieri and Alvaro Recoba on 57 and 64 minutes respectively sealed the win.
Reggina were always on the back foot at Milan, and their cause was not helped by Jorge Vargas`s dismissal on 18 minutes for a foul on Rui Costa.
Filippo Inzaghi netted moments after the sending off and the numerical advantage told later in the game as Brazilian ace Rivaldo netted for the rossoneri.
The goal will come as a relief to Rivaldo, as his first half penalty was saved only for Inzaghi to net his 100th Serie A goal from the rebound.
Luigi Sala and Gianni Comandini scored second-half goals that helped Atalanta secure their first victory of the season, at home to Piacenza.
Roma fought back from two goals down with ten men to secure a home draw with Perugia.
Roma keeper Francesco Antonioli was sent off in the prelude to Jose Ze Maria`s penalty goal on 38 minutes, and Perugia struck again moments later through Fabrizio Miccoli to stun the home side.
Fabio Capello`s side are made of stern stuff, and Christian Panucci brought them back into the game with a goal shortly after the hour.
The capital club needed a saviour and it came as no surprise that talisman Francesco Totti netted the leveller on 70 minutes.
Champions Juventus grabbed three points at Modena courtesy of a 71st-minute Alessandro Del Piero strike. The home side pressed for an equaliser, but were unable to find the target and had Omar Milanetto sent off late on.
Lazio have surprised many this term, and the Eternal City club secured another win on Sunday.
Goals by Bernardo Corradi and Dejan Stankovic lifted them to a 2-1 win at Empoli, who were level for a large chunk of the game courtesy of a Gianluca Atzori strike.
Chievo`s upturn in form continued, as Sergio Pellisier`s last-minute goal gave them a 1-0 win at Parma in Sunday`s late game.
