Lazio had two great chances through captain Ciro Immobile and a third from striker Mattia Zaccagni before Anderson — perfectly set up by Sergej Milinkovic-Savic — put the hosts ahead with a header in the 40th minute at the Stadio Olimpico.
The visitors equalised from a free kick as defender Denzel Dumfries nodded the ball to the unmarked Lautaro Martinez who netted from close range in the 51st minute.
However, substitute Luis Alberto restored the lead for Lazio with a sublime strike from distance in the 75th minute, while Spain forward Pedro made it 3-1 before the final whistle.
Lazio are provisionally top with seven points from three games, while Inter are a point behind in fourth place.
