Christian Vieri gave Hector Cuper's men the lead after just eight minutes against Reggina, and Mohammed Kallon (pictured) doubled the lead on 37 minutes.
Kallon then secured the points when he made it 3-0 from the penalty spot five minutes before half time.
Milan started the day level with Inter at the top of the table, but slipped three points behind them after being defeated at Perugia when Fabrizio Miccoli's 36th minute effort was enough to give them a shock 1-0 win.
Roma have been on a dreadful run of late after winning just once in their last five games, and fell behind at lowly Modena thanks to Diomansy Kamara's goal a minute before half-time.
The Roman club's fans must have been fearing yet another loss before Traianos Dellas struck to save a point with his goal a minute from time.
Lazio edged a point nearer to Juventus and Milan but will think of it as two points lost after they were held to a 1-1 draw at home to bottom side Torino.
Argentinian midfielder Diego Simeone gave the hosts the lead just after the half-hour but Marco Ferrante's leveller on 68 minutes was enough to give the visitors a surprise point at Stadio Olimpico.
Second bottom Como earned a 2-2 draw at home to Parma in a game dominated by penalties.
Adrian Mutu gave the visitors the lead from the spot on 28 minutes, but Como had the chance to level just before the hour when they were awarded a spot-kick.
Nicola Caccia fluffed his lines from 12 yards but then made up for his blunder by grabbing an equaliser from open play five minutes later.
Nicola Amoruso then put the home side ahead but their dreams of a valuable three points were dashed when Mutu struck from the spot again just four minutes from time.
Bologna looked to have staged an excellent comeback at home against Atalanta, with two penalties bringing them back to 2-2 only for a last-minute strike to give the visitors a 3-2 win.
Alex Pinardi put Atalanta 2-0 up with his goals on 27 and 49 minutes but Guiseppe Signori scored twice from the spot on 68 and 72 minutes to draw Bologna level only for Fausto Rossini to grab the winner in the final minute.
Chievo's challenge for a European place took a blow when they could not break down Brescia's defence and played out a goalless draw.
