Zebre claimed their solitary try in the second period, with the French giants adding just two more to their own tally as they ran out 38-5 winners.
"It was a good first half for us: we showed our ambition and played with a lot of dynamism. It was not that good in the second period, though, as we made a few mistakes. But overall, I'm satisfied," said Noves.
"We wanted to remain unbeaten at home and we of course wanted to get the bonus point. We were able to defend well during the first seven minutes and then we scored on our first attack.
"I want my players to make the most of their their qualities by playing positively. We didn't kick the ball very often and we kept it in our hands pretty well.
"I can forgive the few mistakes we made because they came from a desire to play. We want to stick to that. I get the feeling players like that style and are more confident and more efficient with it."
Toulouse face a far tougher test in Round 2 when they travel to England to take on fellow Heineken Cup heavyweights Saracens.
That Wembley encounter already has the juices flowing on both sides of the Channel and Noves knows his side will have to up their game to come out on top for a second week running.
"We will have to be much more rigourous on Friday against Saracens, who won well at Connacht," added Noves.
"They already have that good result behind them, which means we will have to win at Connacht also.
"We're already under pressure therefore and it seems it wasn't that easy for them to come back from Galway with a victory. That shows how difficult our group is and that the English are the favourites since they're unbeaten in the league as well so far this season."
