Christian Amoroso's second half goal was enough to give Bologna a valuable win after Stefano Fiore had cancelled out Giuseppe Signori's opener against his former side.
Lazio started the brighter of the two sides and it came as a surprise when Bologna took the lead on 34 minutes against the run of play.
The goal was somewhat fortuitous as Signori sent in a shot which deflected off Jaap Stam and into the net past Angelo Peruzzi.
The lead was short-lived as Fiore followed up from close-range after Gianluca Pagliuca could only Bernardo Corradi's header into his path.
Bologna restored their lead on 65 minutes with what proved to be the winner as Amoroso's long-range shot fizzed past Peruzzi.
Lazio pushed forward in search of a second equaliser, but their hopes evaporated when Sinisa Mihajlovic was shown a straight red for a late challenge on Japan star Hidetoshi Nakata.
