Italian international Vincenzo Montella opened the scoring for Roma on 18 minutes, but Reggina frustrated the hosts until Norwegian striker John Carew made the game safe with the second seven minutes from time.
The win leaves Fabio Capello's men just two points behind leaders Milan.
Parma remain in fifth place after twice coming from behind to beat Brescia 3-2.
Francesco Matuzalem gave Brescia an early lead after just three minutes, but former Internazionale star Domenico Morfeo hit back for Parma eight minutes later.
Luigi Di Biagio restored the home side's lead on 38 minutes, but Australian ace Marco Marchionni levelled matters again three minutes before the break.
Highly-rated striker Alberto Gilardino grabbed the winner for Parma on 71 minutes to keep them in touch with the leading pack.
Internazionale picked up their first win in six games and their first under Alberto Zaccheroni, with a hard-fought victory over ten-man Chievo at the Stadio Bentegodi.
Second half goals from Christian Vieri and Alvaro Recoba were enough after Luca Marchegiani was sent off for the home side in the first half.
Recoba came closest in the first half to breaking the deadlock on the half hour with a fine free kick from the edge of the box which he rattled the crossbar with.
The game's turning point came three minutes later, when Marchegiani was dismissed for clashing with Vieri on the edge of the box and substitute goalkeeper Giorgio Frezzolini was brought on in place of Amauri.
Inter made their numerical advantage count in the second period and Vieri opened the scoring on 64 minutes with a towering header from Recoba's cross.
Vieri returned the favour three minutes later with a cross from the right to Recoba, who expertly volleyed home to give Inter the win and lift them up to sixth.
Modena moved into seventh spot with a narrow 1-0 success over Perugia.
Riccardo Allegretti grabbed the all-important winning goal for the hosts two minutes after the break to leave Perugia still looking for their first win of the season in Serie A.
Sampdoria piled the pressure on Carlo Mazzone after coming away from Bologna with an impressive 1-0 victory.
Former Atalanta star Cristiano Doni netted the only goal of the game to leave Bologna in trouble at the wrong end of the table.
Lecce climbed out of the bottom four with a narrow 2-1 win over fellow strugglers Empoli.
Javier Chevanton gave Lecce the ideal start with the opening goal from the penalty spot after just a minute and the Uruguayan striker doubled the lead with his second three minutes before the interval.
Tommaso Rocchi gave the visitors hope pulling a goal back on 55 minutes, but Lecce held firm to take all three points.
Ancona are still looking for their first win of the season after being held to a goalless draw at home to Siena.
