Antonio Candreva broke the deadlock three minutes from halftime when he slotted home from close range after great work down the right flank from teenage forward Keita Balde.
Lucas Biglia was dismissed following a second booking shortly before the hour mark but Lazio doubled its lead in the 73rd minute when Senad Lulic smashed Stefano Mauri's pullback under the bar.
Atalanta is two points below Lazio and plays last-but-one Sassuolo.
