Italy scored a first-half penalty try, while Tommaso Allan's penalty and Matteo Minozzi's late try, converted by Carlo Canna, gave the scoreline a touch of gloss for the visitors.
France, who snatched their first win under new coach Jacques Brunel, have six points, three behind leaders Ireland and England who have played a game fewer. Italy remain pointless at the bottom of the table.
France next take on England on March 10, while Italy travel to Wales a day later.
