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.
