Goals inside the opening half hour from David Suazo and Julio Cruz put Inter in control.
Sergio Floccari gave Atalanta hope six minutes before half-time but the visitors could not find an equaliser and finished the game with 10 men after substitute Simone Inzaghi was sent-off just seven minutes after his introduction.
