Ronaldo's record-extending 138th goal in the Champions League came three weeks after he scored in the fifth minute of stoppage time to snatch a victory over Villarreal in the second round of games.
United did it the hard way again after falling 2-0 behind following goals by Mario Pasalic in the 15th minute and Merih Demiral in the 29th. The team was jeered off the field after the halftime whistle.
However, United showed a different side in the second half, laying siege to Atalanta's goal as Marcus Rashford reduced the deficit in the 53rd with a calm finish following a stunning outside-of-the-foot through ball by Bruno Fernandes.
Harry Maguire swept in the equalizer in the 75th and Ronaldo got on the end of a cross by Luke Shaw for the winner.
The Portugal striker made a last-ditch clearance in the final seconds and then fell to his knees at the final whistle.
United moved into first place in Group F, two points above Villarreal and Atalanta.
