Munster overcame a lacklustre first-half display to pull clear of a battling Treviso outfit to triumph 41-10 and register their first win in this season's Heineken Cup.
Thomond Park fell eerily quiet as Treviso took a 10-0 lead thanks to tries from Australian winger Brendan Williams and England Sevens captain Andy Vilk.
Munster hit back with tries from Paul Warwick and Ian Dowling to take a 12-10 interval lead and Tony McGahan's men pulled clear in the second half as Denis Leamy, Denis Fogarty, David Wallace, Ian Dowling and Jean de Villiers took the try tally to a flattering seven.
Ronan O'Gara's kicking was not up to his usual high standard but rampant Munster did not need the benefit of conversions.
England Under-18 head coach John Fletcher insists his young side will be better for the experience after beating Italy in the bronze final to round out their 2015 Rugby Europe U18 Championship campaign in style.
