A Patrick Vieira goal gave Juventus a 1-0 win at Udinese which keeps their 100 percent record intact.
The champions' fine form shows no signs of abating after they sealed a fine success at The Stade Friuli.
Vieira's winner came just before half time and was enough to give Fabio Capello's men victory.
Of the other unbeaten sides in the league, only Lazio lost their record as they succumbed to Milan at The Giuseppe Meazza.
Early strikes from Andrei Shevchenko (12) and Kaka (14) gave The Rossoneri a straightforward success.
Fiorentina remain second after coming from behind to seal a 3-1 win at Lecce.
Alex Pinardi had fired Lecce ahead from the penalty spot on the stroke of half time.
The home side's joy was short-lived as Stefano Fiore levelled just three minutes into the second half.
Former Lecce darling Valeri Bojinov came back to haunt his former employers to give his side the lead (53), before Luca Toni Toni (62) wrapped up the win.
Palermo are up to third and also remain undefeated after Christian Terlizzi's goal after 65 minutes gave them a 1-0 win over Reggina.
Livorno are also without a loss to their name this term after they grabbed a 0-0 draw at Messina.
Internazionale will be pleased with their night's work as they grabbed a hard fought 1-0 success in Verona against Chievo.
Argentine Walter Samuel claimed the winner just minutes into the second half.
Sampdoria's good start to the season continued as Treviso suffered their fourth straight defeat.
Goals either side of the interval from Francesco Flachi (45) and Emiliano Bonazzoli (48) gave Samp their success.
Empoli - who along with Reggina and Treviso, also began the day with three straight defeats - were the only side to end their dismal run courtesy of a 3-1 win over Cagliari at The Carlo Castellani.
Andrea Capone had put the Sardinians ahead, but second half goals from Francesco Tavano (46 & 64) and Sergio Almiron (68) secured Empoli all three points.
Roma are up to seventh after they inflicted a 4-1 drubbing on Parma in the capital.
Captain Francesco Totti (23) put his side ahead and Shabani Nonda (26) soon doubled their lead.
Paolo Cannavaro (30) pulled one back for Parma, but Christian Panucci (34) soon restored Roma's two-goal cushion.
Nonda's second three minutes from time put a real gloss on the scoreline.
Newly-promoted Ascoli are still without a win as they claimed their third draw of the new season.
Erjon Bogdani had given visitors Siena the lead, but Marco Ferrante struck on the hour to give them a share of the spoils.

Lecce 1-3 Fiorentina
Messina 0-0 Livorno
Milan 2-0 Lazio
